Australia is full of sports, one my favourite sports is the Australian Football League or footy for short. There are 18 teams, they are: Western Bulldogs, Carlton, GWS, Brisbane lions, Adelaide crows, Port Adelaide, Essendon, Fremantle, West Coast Eagles, Geelong cats, Gold coast suns, Collingwood, Richmond, St. Kilda, Melbourne, North Melbourne, Hawthorn and Sydney swans. Every team has its own mascot and its own logo.
My favourite team is Collingwood and I believe that they are one of the best. My favourite Collingwood players are Alan Didak, Chris Tarrant and Darren Jolly.
There are only 18 players allowed on a footy oval and those positions are: Full back, Full forward, wing 1, wing 2, Centre half back, Centre half forward, Forward pocket 1, Forward pocket 2, Back pocket 1, Back pocket 2, Half forward flank 1, Half forward flank 2, Half back flank 1, Half back flank 2, Rover 1, Rover 2, Ruck man and Ruck rover. Here are all their positions in the oval:
