Nothing sensational that applied to it's foundation , so I'm open to suggestions . Now if was Aussie rules I'd have my great uncle who was allegedly the first player paid money to transfer from Carlton interstate (note the alleged - it may not be true)

Section 9 is PL OK.

Anne, I think that Phil would struggle to come to grips with a football code with no offside rule.....

I didn't think Rugby had an offside rule , isn't it just you have to pass backwards ?

Thanks, Anne & Denis! Great job! :clap: :clap:

Yes, you do have to pass backwards but you can kick forwards and a player is offside if he is in front of you when you kick to him. There are several other ways to be off-side but I'm sure I've already told you more than you want to know :). Far too many rules in rugby league, unlike aussie rules, where I have been told the only rule is 'no guns or knives'.

Well rugby has its offside rule and Aussie Rules has the "holding the man - holding the man" provisions.

Regarding "no guns or knives" - after retiring from the VFL competition Collingwood ruckman Graeme Jenkin played in the Diamond Valley league. Like many very large footballers, Jenkin had a bad knee. To protect the joint from further injury, he used to play with a metal knee brace. Opponents had to be very careful when encountering him in ruck or marking contests.
