    You know you’re subbing an Australian paper when…

    1. You have to Google every team name in an article because none of them sound like they’re from real places:

    West Belconnen, Woden Valley, Wagga City South, Bathurst St Pats, Terrigal Womberal (dutifully corrected to Wamberal), Coogee Wombats, Clovelly Crocodiles, Caringbah, St Christophers Panania.

    Sigh.
