Just an update on my prior post, www.pseudodictionary.com lists the meaning as "to steal someone's girlfriend" with the example "Don't hit me, I wasn't trying to cut your grass". However, as I said, current Australian use is broader (either boyfriend or girlfriend or potential BF/GF). I'm trying to track this origin/history down, so I'll get any more info to you and would appreciate any info (e.g. current British use). Thanks Pamela
