Well, its footy (either AFL or league) in winter and cricket in summer, so most kids don't choose until near the end of school tbh. Cricket has the advantage of being the only real national sport here, besides soccer which is growing but still small. In Victoria at least, AFL is king and most people care more about their footy team than the cricket. But as soon as the footy is done for the year, cricket is king.
