ITS NOT RUGBY...!!! Australian Rules Football is a far far different sport than Rugby, it is faster, more skillful and higher scoring. Played on very large oval field, the game is free flowing, Rugby is not. Aussie Rules or "Footy" as it is generally called, requires players to kick the ball forwards through the air and to catch it, in Rugby they throw the ball backwards. In Aussie you score by kicking the ball through the biggest of four posts in your offensive end, in Rugby you score by diving on the ground with the ball to score a "try".

In Aussie Rules Football it is like everyone is a Quarterback. No player is more important than the other and there is no offside rule at all. What that means the ball moves quickly from one end of the field to the other and the game is high scoring. Sometimes scores for both teams can be over 100 points. So come down to a practice and learn about a very active and fun sport that will keep you fit and teach you a whole new set of skills you never knew you had.
