Held every two years, the 2018 AFL Victoria Community Cup will see the best players from country Victoria lock horns with the top talent from metropolitan Melbourne in a match that has fast become one of the great traditional rivalries between the bush and the burbs.
Defeated by their country rivals by 39-points in its last encounter in 2016, Vic Metro is keen to return to the winners list when the pair meet at MARS Stadium.
