The Eastern & North Eastern Melbourne region is represented by 38 teams from 10 Clubs in VC - Bulleen, Knox, Eltham, Nunawading, Diamond Valley, Hawthorn, Waverley, Blackburn, Kilsyth, Warrandyte.
The South Eastern Melbourne region is represented by 15 teams in VC from 4 Clubs - Dandenong, Sandringham, McKinnon, Frankston.
The North & Western Melbourne region are represented by 11 teams in VC from just 4 Clubs - Werribee, Altona, Keilor, Broadmeadows.
Melbourne which I would classify as Central Region being based at MSAC has the 8 teams in VC.
While the Vic Country Regional Clubs are represented by 8 teams in VC from 6 Clubs - Bendigo, Geelong, Ballarat, Latrobe, South Pen, Warragul.
Yes you are correct the North Eastern & Eastern region does provide the majority of teams therefore the depth is the greatest but it does have the greatest concentration of Clubs for the region however the North West region doesn't do as bad as you make out for the number of Clubs in the region.
You will probably also find the Melbourne Club has a significant number of players from the North West region.
Just glad we don't have to travel to Warrnambool on a Friday night.
