Aussie Rules

Aussie Rules

The Australian exchange students that visited in September played our Junior football team in two halves of Gaelic and then one half of Aussie rules in Pairc Tailteann.

In the first-half the Australians were unable to compete with our lads and showed very little in any sort of attack in the few chances they had. The juniors scoring with ease at nearly every opportunity they got. The second half went almost the exact same except the Australians seemed to have settled into the game a bit more and managed to score themselves.

Then when it came time to play Aussie rules the Australians came back into it and done to us what we had done to them with our Juniors only managing to score one point. Overall it was a very interesting sporting event.
