Lax on TV in Oz

Postby morrell_ben Tue Apr 17, 2007 7:41 am

I now work for Channel 9 in Oz, am playing casual box every Saturday in Sydney with the NSW boys.......

On Monday for about 5mins there was a feature on men's, womens and US lacrosse, aimed at kids getting into the sport, there was footage from australian lacrosse with highlights of MLL, really good mini feature.

Just thought i'd let you know, and for those who don't know, and to give you the idea of exposure, Channel 9 is about ITV sized in the UK. Was on in the afternoon.

The footage was filmed by Mark Simpfendorfer.
He films a huge amount of Lacrosse over here. He filmed all the major games at least of the 2002 World Championships in Perth and has filmed the ALL for the last 4 or 5 years.
He also films a lot of the State League Games over here in Perth plus Womens and Junior Games.
You can check out the Western Australian Lacrosse website at http://www.wala.com.au/ although aside from the Gazette it's way out of date. But there is a link to Mark's DVD catalogue where you can see some of the games he has filmed.
Anyway, the feature on Monday was pretty good, if short!

view the segment here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ir58_Shhvow

the ALL highlight is from 2005 series South Australia Vs 'Development Team' which featured some guys from Queensland and some guys who were in the Australian Squad but not in a state team. Eg: Gordon Purdie, Dennis Juleff, Brendan Mundorf

fyi lacrosse is very small up in queensland so excuse how poor it appears!

always nice to see lax on the idiot box though.
