One thing that everyone knows about the Aussies is that they love their sport. One weekend a few people decided to go down to watch the AFL and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to watch my first match.
We met up in a pub first for lunch and then made our way to the game. Despite the time of the year approaching winter, it was blistering hot and I almost left at the start to go get a cap as I was sure to burn. Luckily we moved seats so I didn’t need to go home though.
I still don’t feel like I know too much about the game apart from it is played on a round field with 4 quarters and a lot of kicking. It was entertaining though and worth the visit.
One of the most surprising things was at the end they opened the field for everyone to go on and have a kick around themselves which was really good fun.
