If you were at a trivia night and the question was raised, where is the birthplace of Australian Rules Football? What would be your answer?
.
The answer is Moyston, small farming community outpost 240km north-west of Melbourne and a few long drop kicks from Ararat
.
At 14, Thomas Wentworth Wills attended England's prestigious Rugby School. He returned in 1856 and developed football, in its embryonic form, as a game for cricketers to play in winter to keep fit
.
(Edit) "On his father's station Lexington, it is believed Wills met local Aboriginal children and played Marn Grook, a version of our game using a possum-skin ball"
.
Two years later the first game of football was played between Scotch College and Melbourne Grammar in the parklands around what became the MCG
.
And the rest is history
