I HAVE never really understood sport, especially the organised kind like football and cricket. It all seems a bit silly and frivolous.
And yet millions, maybe billions, of people swear by it and can get quite emotional, even violent, about a game.
Papua New Guinea’s obsession with rugby is a good example. There are apparently several forms of rugby and I’m not sure which one prevails there or what the differences are. Anyway, people in PNG have died arguing about whichever one it is.
