Aussies are cool, but then I have lived there for 2 years and those are small towns so I don't know. Besides most of them are kiwis anyway!!

Rubbish.

Putting the accent aside, there's quite a difference. The biggest being, Aussies don't handle Kiwi success well.Something from their origin perhaps.;)

Well, not wading into this in a cautious manor,
I do seem to remember seeing on e-bay a certian trophy cabnet for sale.
Seems it used to belong to Australian sport, no use for it any more so it was going cheap.
But it mention that it was very spacious, as it used house quite a few trophies. But with the decline of Australia and it's sporting proess into the oblivion of 2nd class runner ups.

Rugby league Tri-nations - Gone

Yep, it's true.

Us aussies decided to sell out all those trophies. We needed to clear out the cabinet space due to the enormity of the one trophy we shall be holding in 2 months time - THE FOOTBALL (SOCCER) WORLD CUP

I thought that the Sydney born and bred Aussies were a little more forthright, bold, outgoing, loud. The Melbournites, were the most laid back, friendly, giving and made me want to go back in the future to explore Melbourne.

I didnt meet any other Aussies from elsewhere, so I couldnt comment on the rest of Oz, sorry!

Ok I really didn't intend this on being a Aussie vs Kiwi thing but I really do have to stand up for my country. As said earlier we aren't selfish people we have had all those titles for years..so we should let it slide for a year or so to let the other countries no what success feels like hahaha

Oh and I truly don't have anything agains kiwi's but could you be a bit more orginal with their flag..I mean you have copied ours but just coloured in the stars red!
