The All Stars team consisting of Ainslie past players were successful in defending their title in the game against the Combined Dream Team and retained the All Stars Challenge Shield.
The game was played as a curtain raiser to the Reserves game on Sunday 17 June and provided plenty of entertainment for the crowd. The All Stars started the game well and opened up a good lead by half time under the guidance of coach John Rebecca using their football skills and experience.
However as the game went on the Dream Team started to close the gap and threatened to snatch victory as energy levels of the All Stars started to fade. Some interesting umpiring decisions by Club Coach Chris Rourke added to the tension in the final minutes of the game and the All Stars were able to hang on to win by 4 points.
Final score: All Stars 9.1-55 def the Dream Team 8.3-51
