Aussie footballers finish training camp in Utah

If you encountered a group of hunky Australians around Park City or Salt Lake City before Christmas, it wasn't your imagination.

The team members conducted drills at the University of Utah football team's facilities, and did some obstacle-course work at the Utah Olympic Park in Park City.

It wasn't all work, though. The team got to check out the bobsleds in Park City, and attended a Utah Jazz game.

The Magpies kick off the 2013 season in March.
