Singapore Wombats gun Catherine McLean and Indonesian Volcanoes superstar Peter Macfarlane headline two huge squads filled with talent that took out All-Asian honours at the 2023 ATG Asian Championships in Thailand.

With more spots up for grabs than ever before in the women’s All-Asian squad, it was the Vietnam Swans who took home four nods. After winning the division title in the grand final just moments earlier, the trophy-winning Swans saw Aofie Brody, Lucy O’Rourke and Mary Eviston joined by Leading Goalkicker Katie Quinn on behalf of the Vietnam team.

Happy Swans – Vietnam’s women’s representatives named in the 2023 All-Asian team with coach Wayne McMahon.

In the men’s All-Asian squad, the Indonesian Volcanoes took home a whopping five jumpers across the three men’s divisions, with Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam close behind with three apiece.

Indonesia’s Peter Macfarlane took out both the Best Player and Leading Goalkicker awards in the men’s Division 1.

Perennial All-Asian Peter ‘Gunny’ Muir earned himself another nod, with the veteran now losing count of the amount of All-Asian honours he’s been awarded across a number of AFL Asia clubs.
