Difference between UK & Great Britain

http://geography.about.com/library/faq/blqzuk.htm

UK is the country: “UK of GB and Northern Ireland”
GB is the island consisting of Scotland, England & Wales.

Seems to me the ‘Poms’ as a collective picks and chooses: rugby teams of Eng, Scot, Wales, British Lions. Who do Northern Irelanders represent? Is it GB or UK at the Olympics?

No wonder this poor Aussie’s confused!

(Oops, maybe my category should’ve read UK? So why’s it the British Empire? …..)
