Darwin Cubs is a now-defunct soccer club from Darwin, Australia.
The Cubs played as a foreign team in the Singapore Premier League in 1994 and finished runners-up to another Australian team, Perth Kangaroos IFC. They also entered the Singapore league the following year, but had to withdraw part way through the season due to financial difficulties.
The Cubs were managed by Nicholas Mitaros. Some of the team's higher-profile players included Luis Rodriguez, Peter Politis, Manuel Lolias, Barbero, Hamilton Thorpe, Jason Petkovic, Cyril Ndongo-Keller and Carlo Talladira, all of whom moved to or returned to Australian National Soccer League teams after the demise of the Cubs.

“An unlicked bear”
—Trans. by Johanna Prins.
Dutch expression meaning a boor: from the old belief that bear cubs are licked into shape by their mothers.
“Natural selection, the blind, unconscious, automatic process which Darwin discovered, and which we now know is the explanation for the existence and apparently purposeful form of all life, has no purpose in mind. It has no mind and no minds eye. It does not plan for the future. It has no vision, no foresight, no sight at all. If it can be said to play the role of the watchmaker in nature, it is the blind watchmaker.”
—Richard Dawkins (b. 1941)
