Briefly examines the origins of Association football in the United Kingdom before looking at the origins of football in Australia, in order to assess the influence of Aboriginal forms of football on the early development of Australian Rules football. Hay surveys and weighs up the arguments of many of the major contributors to this debate before drawing his own conclusions. The role of Tom Wills and the views of Gillian Hibbins are discussed in detail. A scholarly, insightful and objective analysis from a respected sports historian.
