An official part of the ANZAC Day commemorations, the game saw a French side playing against an Australian team (the Aussie Spirit) made up of expats based in Europe.
The match was a tribute to the French and Australian soldiers who fought side by side in The Great War so many years ago.
Prior to the match I conducted a junior coaching clinic for local French children, who were all thrilled to receive their very own football afterwards.
I came out of retirement to play in the match, although my body took a long while to forgive me. There was no way I was going to miss it, however, and it was a real honour to play in the inaugural ANZAC Cup. Lest we forget.
The ANZAC CUP is now an annual event on the European AFL calendar.
