Sydney Swans vs Essendon, AFL

On Saturday I went to Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) to see the Sydney Swans vs Essendon in the Australian Football League (AFL).

A slightly baffling game, played over four quarters which is a cross between gaelic football and rugby league. Despite the fact there were at least four referees on the pitch rules seemed to go un-enforced and there were a number of unpunished off the ball incidents.

I'm not sure AFL is my game, but I'm looking forward to going back to the SCG to see a game of cricket in the summer.

We had a very pleasant post match drink at the Beresford Hotel in Kings Cross, which is a very funky pub.


  1. aerial ping-pong Ritchie, it goes over my head as well.

  2. I used to feel the same way but now I think it is the greatest game ever. That and Quidditch!

  3. @Tom - that is one of the better spam comments I have seen.

  4. Thanks Richard - I'll take that as a compliment - I think!
