AFL name Chris Scott to help Aussie team

Geelong coach Chris Scott will assist Hawthorn counterpart Alastair Clarkson in the international rules series.

The AFL confirmed on Thursday that Scott would join Clarkson and Fremantle's Ross Lyon on Australia's coaching panel for the one-off Test against Ireland in Perth on November 22.

The league announced earlier this year that the team would be restricted to those players who have achieved All-Australian selection.
