Rome Redbacks Australian Rules Football, the very sport you've been waiting for.

Thank you to our Sponsors, so far for 2021. Visit them and do business, they are awesome !!

Rome RedbacksThe Rome Redbacks started their USAFL game history with a great 1st game win over their hosts the Atlanta Kookaburras on Saturday. Granted the Atlanta team helped out the Redbacks with some extra players to fill out their team, but it was still a historic day for the newly formed Rome Aussie Rules Football Club .

First time player Rome local, Randall Barnett was a notable contributor for the Redbacks along with team founder and coach Wayne Kraska. Linley Laverdure also made a huge contribution to the team as a fill in player having just arrived back from Australia.

The Rome team scored 12 goals 14 behinds for 86 points to Atlanta 12 goals 8 behinds 80 points. So a 6 point win that could have gone either way. The game was played in a friendly manner by both teams and the new club uniforms were shown off and recognized as some of the sharpest looking Aussie Rules football uniforms many players had seen.

The Rome Redbacks continue to practice twice a week here in Rome and look to recruit more players that want to play a fun, skillful, high scoring sport. If you just want to get fitter and meet some new friends you can also join in to play Social no tackle games coming up in the fall.
