It sounds like they are cheering *against* the Reds ???
There are about a million Kiwis living abroad.Ask any Australian to
find out most of them are in Queensland or Seedney. We've taken over
their dole, their jobs, and now their stadiums.
The point stands if Reds supporters were outnumbered in their own
stadium. Don't Queenslanders support their team?
Yes and no. Going to Ballymore is more of a social observance. The
importance here of what school (private) you attended in a social
situation is astonishing. Go to a private school? Have to go to the
rugby to be seen and get obnoxiously drunk on bundy rum loudly
proclaiming about how much better you were at school than the fuckwit on
the field. A town full of rank under achievers still living vicariously
through the myth of their school tie. Because of the vast number of
immigrants to the Sunshine State, and the relative cheapness of airfares
across the ditch, it is not unusual to have a large number of kiwis and
lately South Africans at the game. They are the knowledgeable ones. In
fact, Queensland fans are second only to Brumbies in their complete
ignorance of the Laws and spirit of the game.
"At least we went out and played in that first half. And what have
France done? They've won with kicks from the 10-metre line. It's
bitterly frustrating." - Andy Robinson
