Get Into Rugby Mode This Winter
Now that we’re right into winter here in Melbourne and the days get continually shorter, the sport of choice is Australian Rules football. But these photos prove that Melbourne, the sporting capital of this nation, embraces just about any sport.
Rugby union is about to take my city by storm – as you can see by the larger-than-life mural at this Visitor Centre on the Bourke Street Mall. There is already a fair bit of talk about this month’s two-Test series, when the Qantas Wallabies take on Italy in the 2009 Bundaberg Rum Rugby Series.
How big are the murals? Like most rugby players, they are high and wide. This next shot, with a passer-by in the frame, should put it all into context for you.
