Future of Tas AFL state league locked in

The future of Tasmania's premier AFL competition has been guaranteed amid a review tasked with fixing the state's footy 'crisis'.

Doubt clouded the sustainability of the Tasmanian State League (TSL) after two northwest teams withdrew prior to this season citing a lack of players.

But AFL Tasmania CEO Trisha Squires said on Thursday the TSL would continue in 2019, with AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan expected to hand down the full findings of a steering committee in coming days.
