Aussie rugby league is still a relatively new sport, with just five teams in the country.
The first game was played in the 1980s, and there are only a handful of games played in Australia today, but that doesn’t mean the sport isn’t worth a look.
This story is an excerpt from the new book The Australian Footballer: The Inside Story of the Soccer Generation, which comes out on August 15.

Here’s a selection of the best highlights from the first book: The first Australians ever to play the game was a young Peter Fagerson, who was born in Perth, aged three.
“I was quite a big fan of the game back then,” he said.
“The first game I played was at a friend’s house.
I had no idea what to expect. “
He was a pretty tall, skinny kid with a big smile.
I had no idea what to expect.
The second day I played another friend of mine in the same house, so we went down to see a few games.” “
It was a big day for me and I was pretty excited.
The second day I played another friend of mine in the same house, so we went down to see a few games.”
After playing with Fageson, he went on to play with some other local players, including Billy Jones, the legendary coach of the West Coast Eagles and current coach of Melbourne City.
“Billy was a great coach, so he was my first coach and I really enjoyed his coaching style.
I was really impressed with his coaching, and it really helped me to get to where I am today.”
The Australian Rules Football League (ALFL) was born around 1984, and was based in Perth.
In 1987, it was renamed the Australian Rules League (ARL), and was then renamed the AFL.
The ARL was a huge success, with the sport reaching almost 3.5 million people, with teams playing in almost all of Australia.
The AFL also enjoyed some success with the introduction of the ‘Tiered’ rules in 1991, which were based on the ‘Cup’ rules.
This meant that a team was allowed to lose its two most valuable players for each match.
For example, if the Kangaroos lost their two most important players in the 1990 season, the Kangaroo would only be allowed to play four matches, while the Cats could only play two.
The Kangaroes had a great record in 1992, and in 1994, they made the grand final.
However, they lost to the Cowboys in round seven.
“They played pretty badly against us and in the finals,” Fagson said.
But that was just one of the reasons he loved the ARL.
“In the 1990s, we had a pretty good football team and a good coach, but they didn’t really make it to the grand finals.
We won the grand-final and that was a really special feeling.
We played a very good game in the grandfinal, but it was a tough one.
I really liked the game, and I liked the players.” “
But I really loved the AFL, so I really relished that.
I really liked the game, and I liked the players.”
It was in the 1992 finals, however, that Fagon was on the receiving end of a brutal hit on the head.
“When I went down in the first quarter I was getting hit with a ball,” he recalled.
The ARSFL went on a tear for a few years, winning a premiership and two league championships before the AFL came along in 1994. “
It just went straight into my head, it hurt like hell, and my helmet was smashed all over my head.”

Fagons career was off to a great start.
“We won a lot of the premierships and won the finals.
Then we had another great year with the AFL,” he continued.
The ‘Aussie Rules’ era came to an end in 1994 when the AFL banned players with a history of head injuries from the game. “
That was a hard year, but I was enjoying it and I loved the challenge.”

“You can only get that kind of injury for so long, and then it’s a whole different ball game,” Fags said.
Fags’ career was also affected by the ‘Bomber Rule’, which was introduced to prevent players from striking opponents in the middle of the field.
Fagan said he remembers watching his
