Scotland Try for Up and Under Down Under


As Scotland heads into another sporting oblivion at the Rugby League World Cup here in Australia, starting off the tournament with a gritty loss to France and with matches against the like of Papua New Guinea and the Dream Time team, it is appropriate to pay tribute to Eddie Waring, Yorkshireman and Honorary Scots Rugby League Ambassador.

We used to watch Rugby League when it was shown on Grandstand on Saturday afternoon in my grandparents living room in Kirkcaldy, with black and white muddy encounters from Hull and the Warrington with teams of guys running into each other enlivened by Eddies commentary. The theatre of the event appealed to my Granddad.

Here in Adelaide, Rugby League might as well be Curling in terms of the interest. It is amazing to me that Scotland has a national team and that Scottish people are interested in it.

Turns out Eddie was also a wrestling commentator. It must have been his sense of humour and sense of showmanship that appealled.

And where else can you get a Scotland Papua New Guinea sports clash. Should be a cracker as Eddie would say.

I must say when I lived in Edinburgh there was not much familiarity with league. Rugby union and soccer (football) only.

And no cricket either - strange isnt it given Britain is the size of Victoria - the differences between countries still amazes me even though they are within cooee distance from each other. Dont get me started on the accents.

I think SA is the most different state of Australia - from the rest - mainly because there were more British settled there so you talk 'posher' over your way. Personal opinion of course!!

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
