AFL Grand Final

Some of us believe it's the greatest sport in the universe, but if you're not into the quintessential Aussie game, here's some tips get you through the day:

  1. Decide before you get there which team you are going to barrack for on the day (pick your favourite colours at least)
  2. Every AFL supporter "hates" another team - say stuff like "at least it's not (insert team here)
  3. Shout out "ball" at regular intervals

NRL Grand Final

Rugby League has two distinct fan bases - by team or by state.  If you don't have a team in the grand final, then choose one from your state of origin. Here's some tips to get you in the scrum:

  1. Choose your outfit carefully - most of the colours are covered by all the NRL teams so if you don't want to show allegience to any teams dress in fluoro pink
  2. Everything is the fault of the "touch ref"
  3. Shout out "forward" at regular interval

Party food should include meat pies, hot dogs or anything on a BBQ ......and drinks - anything in a bottle or cans.

Gears & Beers

The 3rd annual Gears and Beers community cycle challenge, conceived and run by the Rotary Club of Wollundry Wagga Wagga , will be held on Sunday, 2nd October 2016.
