AFL: St Kilda v Carlton

A crowd of just over 12,000 enjoyed the Anzac Day AFL fixture at the stadium in Wellington today, witnessing a come-from-behind victory by Carlton over St Kilda. Having been exhorted to support St Kilda as 'the home team' through some sort of trans-Tasman deal, the crowd witnessed Carlton storming back from 25 points down after the first quarter, to taking the lead midway through the third quarter, and finally stretching out to victory over St Kilda by 40 points. The final score: Carlton 121 - 81 St Kilda. For a novice like me, who has only been to a single match before and that approximately 10 years ago, it was an ideal way to spend Anzac Day afternoon, and for the uninitiated the game is much easier to follow live than it is on TV.
