So the first round of the Foxtel Cup is over and the first teams have now been sent back to their respective leagues, able to enjoy their byes for the rest of the year. Of the 16 teams that took part this year, only eight remain. So what have we learnt so far?

The Foxtel Cup could be one of the great initiatives seen in the AFL for quite some time. Having 16 clubs from outside the AFL level play against each other for the right to be known as the best team outside AFL footy, is a step in the right direction.
