Aussies love sports. Like its western counterparts, Australians engage in different sports, attend and watch sporting events. Aside from cricket and netball, Aussies are fond of its version of the football and rugby. Almost all Aussies watch the Australian Football League (AFL) or the National Rugby League (NRL). AFL is more popular in Victoria, particularly in Melbourne while NRL is the name of the game in New South Wales. The European version of the football is now gaining ground in Australia when the Socceroos became finalist in the World Cup.
To be a true Aussie, one has to be a fan of either the AFL or the NRL teams, the Socceroos, the Wallabies or the Mathildas.
