Rubgy (AFL), Rugby (NRL), Rugby (Touch)

Crazee weekend of Rugby down here. It seems that Rugby is such a popular sport they have many versions that are played.

To start with, Noah and Hannah are playing Touch Rugby with the MUDGEERABA REDBACKS, a local club near the house and Friday nights for the next 10 weeks. First night Noah was a tagging machine and Hannah scored a try.

On a more National scene, there were 2 final championship games - Premierships they call them. The first was the AFL Championship - Aussie Rules where anything goes on the field. St. Kilda vs Collingwood. I am amazed that one person we talked to at a BBQ called our ice hockey "violent" compared to the AFL final match.
On Sunday the NRL is closer to the rugby we play at home but not many scrums during the game. Dragons VS Roosters. Its like a game of touch "with a tackle" instead of touch. Very fast game with some very fit athletes.

All in all very much a rugby weekend.
