Who is the captain of the Brisbane Lions AFL team?


What ranking is the USA in Rugby right now?

It has been a while since I was at school, but I will take a guess.
Sports played, would also depend on which state you are currently in, as most states control their own education. Ie, it is not a national standard. The sports include:
Australian Rules (AFL)
Rugby Union
Rugby League
Football (Soccer)
Track and Field
Swimming and Diving
They also have lessons for Surfing, do not know if there is a competition for it or not.
I know there is a senior American Football League, but unsure whether you can play at school.

I totally forgot about Softball and Basketball.
There could be more though.

Who do you think will be in the top 8 at the end of the afl home and away season.?

At the school I went to, AFL was banned because it was thought to be too rough for the playground. We had to play soccer in winter, and cricket in summer, and weren't allowed to swap sports until we got permission from the teachers. One year the teachers forgot to give us permission to play cricket, so we had to play soccer through the whole summer.

Who will win the anzac medal in the Anzac Day AFL Clash?

i dunno.

How do I improve my fitness for AFL?

Australia doesn't really have school sporting systems.

The top level of junior sport is played through out-of-school clubs.

Schools do have sports teams, but among the athletes it's considered fun, a chance to play with your school mates who you might play against on a saturday and a chance to get out of class.

If I has to say something I would say Cricket would be the most traditional, serious, and prestigious. But like I said, it's really all about club teams.

Will the saints defeat the bulldogs tonight?

Netball (though in my all-boys school, guys just signed up for this one because the teacher was hot)
