quicko: no national anthem at the rugby

I went to a rugby game and it suddenly hit me:  they didn't start with the national anthem.  I really don't recall it being played at the cricket or AFL game either, though possibly I arrived late and missed it?  American baseball games certainly always start with The Star Spangled Banner, but it is a bit more loved than Advance Australia Fair.

It would have been played at the cricket match, as would Sri Lanka's as it was an international match. We were running late and missed the first few overs, remember?
