This isn't as ridiculous as it seems... During the 1956 Olympics, Australia
played an exhibition match against England (the English soccer team trained,
learned the rules and played), and despite being completely inexperienced
and against a true all-Austrlian team, i believe they kicked threee goals to
about fif*** - quite a good effort.  By the Way, the team was captained by
some ***ing Collingwood legend of course - but I just can't ***ing
remember who it was!

It would be like making Gridiron an Olympic sport.
