I was at the Australia v Czech match, I don't know anything about basketball but if we can get past Spain in the semi we may well find ourselves world champions.
Unfortunately I'm just working in Shanghai and my last match is a classification match tomorrow, but I will watch the Aussies from home.
The Australian team has players at the highest level of the sport, despite its modest resources at home. Can we learn something from them? Perhaps, but not if we stick solely to the AFL and NRL model.
