  • Fact About Rugby League

  • There are 16 teams, one of which is New Zealand.

Australian Rugby

New Zealand, a land where sheep roam

My birth place, my country, my home

A land of mountains, lakes and snow

Glistening Glaciers, raging rivers flow

Australia sits across the Tasman Sea

A new home for me

Australia, a hot blazing fire beckons me to her shore

Family friends close no more

A new life I have to form

So sad, so lonely I wish to morn

But rugby league is my life

It keeps me out of strife

Aussie rugby I meet new mates

Entering different stadium gates

Men as tough as nails

We play in sun, rain and hail

Pass, throw, chip, kick, try

The winning team holds it’s head up high

Thump, crack, whistle blows, cheer

The loosing team shreds a tear

Finally the game comes to an end

Australia now my friend

Not as bad as I thought it would be

My new country, my new home for me.
