One of the first things you'll notice after arriving in Australia is how passionate Aussies are about taking part in, or watching sport. Regardless of the season or the state you reside in, a sport that suits your preferences is always easily accessible. In this final episode of 'Australia Explained', we look at two of the country's most popular sports, Australian Rules and Rugby, and explain some of their "hard to follow" rules. We also look at the competition between the two codes, their relationship with Australia's Arab community, and list some other popular sporting events that you should know about.
