A chant of similar form, "Oggy Oggy Oggy", has been used for decades
by football crowds in Britain. Members of the British Royal Navy claim
to have used the Oggy Oggy Oggy chant, or a version of it, since the Second World War.
Englishman Ron Knox claims to have used the "Oggy" chant while playing for the Box
Hill Rugby Club in Melbourne in the late 1960s. Various conflicting stories of
how it was introduced from Britain to Australia can be found.
