MOAMA Anglican Grammar students Bailey Steenbuck and Callum Doyle were stumped when asked what would be the highlight of their upcoming international jaunt.

And who could blame them?

With a visit to Wembley Stadium to soak up the atmosphere of a Tottenham Hotspur match and a trip to famous landmarks including Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower and Buckingham Palace, the teenagers were spoilt for choice.

The boys will fly out November 28 to spend 18 days travelling England, Ireland and France to play in the Wanderers Junior AFL Football Team – International Rules Tour.

The pair were invited to play after competing in the Combined Independent Schools NSW competition team last year in Albury.

The trip will cap off a bumper season for the Moama footballers who recently claimed the under 17 flag with Moama Football Club.

Steenbuck said he was keen to check out the prowess of international AFL teams.

“I’m pumped to go,” he said.

“It’s not every day you get to play footy overseas and see some famous landmarks.”

Doyle said he was most looking forward to soaking up the atmosphere at Wembley Stadium.

“It’s a stadium with a lot of history and seeing Tottenham will be amazing,” he said.

“We don’t know who their opponents will be but it will be a great experience whoever it is.”
