Hollywood superstar Russell Crowe may have just found the right formula to success for his rugby league football team, the Rabbitohs. Last year the team finished about half way in the league ladder, but so far in this year's season, the Rabbitohs are holding fifth spot! All this seems to be thanks to...chess!
From the SMH: "They don't play poker any more, they play chess. The coaching staff all play chess. They play before training, while they are in physio, they've put tournament draws up on the noticeboards. It's ludicrous. They've got magnetic chess boards to take with them on the plane."
