A video of polocrosse filmed in 1947 from Australia seems to suggest that originally polocrosse was played mainly by women and that men would gather on the sidelines to watch them. Well, thank god someone put a stop to that…maybe.
To watch the video in question click here. It is brought to us courtesy of British Pathe and features the wonderful line “If your wife has lost her snood I know where it is” (Editors note: we had no idea what a snood was either but apparently the official definition is a small netlike cap worn by women to keep the hair in place. We still have no idea where it might be if it is lost though!)
