I find the Jarryd Hayne story fascinating, as I do whenever an Aussie reaches the pinnacle of any sport. From Daniel Ricciardo, Matthew Dellavedova to Jason Day and now Jarryd, I mind myself watching a sport that I may otherwise have little interest in.
Two years ago Eric Wallace started his journey into Australian rules football. At the time I wrote an article on Eric and was genuinely excited at the thought of such a massive athlete taking on the challenge of AFL football.
For me to make the trip to Etihad Stadium is a seven-hour round trip. For a 4.40pm game on a Sunday, even when my team the Swans are involved, it is not an option when I have to work on Monday.
When the AFL decided to introduce an 18th club, based in Western Sydney, they needed a strategy to help get the club kick-started. There are two strategies they could have used – ‘Moneyball’ and the ‘youth policy’.
So your team may or may not of taken out the big one this year. But who took out the most searched team on Google award for 2012?
So you have an opportunity to play a code of football at the highest level and yet you have so many questions.
