Jumping at the Chance

Though most Americans automatically think “rugby” when they hear or read the phrase “Australian football,” the two sports actually have very little in common besides tackling and kicking. “Footy,” as this unique sport is known in Aussie circles, bears more resemblance to American athletics, requiring the skill and grace of basketball combined with the physical toughness and endurance of American-style football. Scouts from the Australian Football League realized that a key position on their teams required both the height and ball handling skills readily found in American basketball players. In Jumping at the Chance, longtime Aussie football fanatic Gil Griffin delivers a riveting account of American athletes who go to the other side of the world in search of dreams of glory.
