Rugby 7s training
This morning I was going for a jog when we saw that the Aussie 7s team was training at the oval where I normally do yard duty. So the whole family took a walk down there, where we enjoyed watching the rigours of training before the Commonwealth games. In one of the most injurious sports you'll every come across, even when they weren't doing full tackles by any means, someone did get hurt and had to sit out the rest of the day.
We aren't really rugby followers, true Melbournites after all, but when they had been given a sticker of the Wallabies, the kids stuck it in their project books and asked for autographs! We discovered later, that the guy who really stood out has played for Fiji as well as Australia and for a long time at the Brisbane Broncos. His name? Lote Tuqiri...
