Stone the flamin' crows! Fair suck of the sauce bottle! (and other
antipodean phraseology.) This Aussie can take no more!

Surely your definition is relating to trail? as in trail behind? (will
accept the dreaded late-night typo as applicable excuse :)

Diane Evans <diane_evans -at- hotmail -dot- com> was shocked, shocked to find out
that "trial" is a verb in an Australian dictionary.

Well, of course; it is in a US dictionary, too. In 'Strine, to trial is to
allow to drag or stream behind, or to follow, as in the scent.

You just have to adjust for the accent 8^| <-- straight face
