Beat the shit out of each other. I broke the same ankle twice before I decided to stop. Now whenever I wake up my ankle can tell me the weather :P

Basically, it's American [s:50y81qar]Rugby[/s:50y81qar] Football without the super body armour, and you can only pass backwards. Over here we call it a Hooligan's sport for Gentlemen, while Football is a Gentlemen's sport for Hooligans.

Rugby = American football without the padding, you can only pass backwards, and if the ball touches the ground it doesn't matter, someone else just picks it up. You cannot run into an 'endzone' though, you put it down on the ground to get the points. It lasts for 80 minutes per game.
