Two teams, each containing 18 extremely fit and highly skilled athletes, run, kick, mark (catch), hand-pass and tackle their way around an oval that dwarfs a soccer pitch, NFL field and basketball court. This is a game where throwing the ball is always illegal – Aussie Rules Football needs to be seen to be believed.
The aim is to kick the oval ball through the two taller posts at your team’s end of the field. This is called a goal. Goals are worth 6 points.
After 4 quarters of play, the team with highest score wins.
