Two weeks later the magpies are down by 6 goals to Carlton with only 10
minutes left.

The coach gives the young Iraqi the nod and he goes in. The kid is a
sensation - kicks 7 goals in 10 minutes and wins the game for the magpies!

The fans are thrilled, the players and coaches are delighted, and the media
are in love with the new star

When the player comes off the ground he phones his mum to tell her about his
first day of AFL.

'Hello mum, guess what?' he says, 'I played for 10 minutes today, we were 6

the media...'

shot in the street and robbed, your sister and I were ambushed and beaten,
and your brother has joined a gang of looters, and all while you were having

Collingwood in the first place!'
