OPEN COLUMN (To the Editor.) AUSTRALIAN RULES FOOTBALL IN CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 5 February 1925
OPEN COLUMN (Te the Editor.) AUSTRALIAN RULES FOOTBALL IN CANBERRA. Sir-This game, which is purely Aus tralisa, made such a great hit here last season that is is expected that a larger number of teams will participate in the game this coming season, and also that the season will open much earlier this year. As club secretaries are moving in that direction already, an invitation has been extended to this Association to visit Wagga during the winter months. It is to be hoped that the invitation will be accepted as there are some great footballers at Wagga. It will be remembered that Canberra players crowned themselves with glory in Sydney last year, and I expect them to do the same at Wagga if they go there. I would like to see a first-class team visit Canberrb during the season to show the general public, who have never seen Australian Rules Football played as it should be played, that it is the great Australian game which we have always claimed it to be. It is my intention to publis...
