Sports Letters: Grand job

The Independent Online
Sir: As an Australian in London I endorse K Ian Collier's letter congratulating you on your coverage of the Australian Rules Grand Final in Melbourne. I particularly appreciated the colour photograph of the magnificent mark by Bill Brownless, of Geelong.

In fact, a major reason I regularly take The Independent is that it is the only British newspaper to print, every Monday, the Australian Rules scores.

I also deplore the fact, as must tens of thousands of British-based Australians, that neither Channel 4 or Sky TV any longer run even highlights from the AFL games. Further, they spend an inordinate amount of time screening styleless and incomprehensible American Football, a game which cannot compare with the Australian one for sheer excitement.

Yours faithfully, BRUCE BERESFORD London SW5
