Australian sporting prowess

Recommended Posts

You have to take your hat off to Australia - only 22 million people I'm told, but 14th in the FIFA rankings for 'soccer' and 2nd in the Aussie Rules world rankings. As a young nation, Australia has excelled over the years in many sports - athletics, swimming, cricket, golf, both rugby codes, boxing, even the less physical past-times like snooker (remember the late Eddie Charlton).

 

So, as a humble pom, awestuck at such achievements, I have to ask in all sincerity whether - other than test cricket, obviously - there are any sports that Australians as a whole have tried and failed at?

I think it is New Zealand, but I'm still awaiting confirmation on that one.

Yes indeed the Irish - Gaelic football and hurling. They would be top of the ratings in both. As 'sports' (using the term in its widest sense) they are probably the only 2 that make Aussie Rules look like a walk in the park.

Aussie Rules aka GayFL is played only in Australia but there is a mixed game they play once a year against the Irish.

 

As for the cricket, the poms can have the ashes, dont think anyone really gives a shit about. But yes, we are good at everything :)

when aussie rules play gaelic football (international rules) it strangely turns into boxing haha. they dont do it any more because every one just got sent off

I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.

I used to go missing a lot...Miss Canada, Miss United Kingdom, Miss World.

Joking aside I think Australia might be the surprise package in the World Cup. They have a decent footballing team.

Like to see the referral system used for the WC this would dispel any doubt whether a free kick should be awarded at crucial times.
