Training, Royal Park, Melbourne

1-15th October 1967

The Galahs were recruited one by one by Harry Beitzel and Ron Barassi. They trained at Roayl Park, Carlton, in the shadows of the Old Children's Hospital. Local Irishman Eamonn Makie was enlisted to teach the players the game.

All the players remember the difficulty they had kicking the round ball.
