On Friday, the St. Kilda Football Club of the Australian Football league visited Dove Valley, touring the Broncos’ facilities and taking in practice from the sidelines.
The visit gave the players an up-close look at a sport many of them admire from afar.
“It’s a wonderful experience for us to be able to come over here,” team captain and center half-forward Nick Ryewoldt said. “We’re at the top of our game in Australia, but we’ve got a population of 25 million. To be able to come over here and witness firsthand one of the great teams of American sport is wonderful.”
