The vast majority of expats to Australia, whether from Europe, America or Asia, will likely have some interesting sport. Therefore begs the question, it sports a good way to integrate yourself with the local Australian population?

I hope so.

Finding a local rugby club will be one of the first things on the agenda.

Have never unstood AFL & whenever I've asked an Aussie about the rules it only gives me more questions than answers.

Or perhaps I'm just dumb.

Jeza The rules tend to be different here in Ausie lol. I don't understand footie out here or rugby, I use to love football with a passion but here the passion runs deep to the core,
