Its all happening in the so called , ” off season ” , of the AFL footy competition .
The Irish thrashed the Aussie team , in the two match International Rules series, held in Melbourne and Brisbane recently . Displaying superlative ball skills , and fine agility the Irishmen outplayed , outkicked and outmarked ,the hapless Aussies , who looked like a bunch of amateurs compared to the skillful Irish team
Fans wearing their footy jumpers , jerseys , guernseys ,watched on in horror as the Aussies lost to the better team of the series .
The Saints are back on St Kilda Beach . Hundreds of loyal fans turned out , in their Saints football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys , with new coach , Scott Watters , captain Nick Rieweoldt and defender Sam Gilbert to film ‘ saints on the beach ‘ . A new cocktail , you ask , no , its the Saints latest publicity stunt , to secure membership for 2012, Â and promote the team . It is the earliest many bleary eyed fans have got out of bed , and ventured to St Kilda BeachÂ , since their night clubbing days at Bojangles in the 70’s , at the same location . On hand, looking resplendent , in their football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys, the beach was awash with the red , white and black.
