    I hope Roos or the Blues make it. Especially the Blues now they have Judd.

    Worst game ever conceived.

    Aussie rules must have been the product of sunstroke and 6 cases of beer.

    I mean, come on!
    There is no skill involved - All you have to do to be considered a good player is not die.

    So what game did South Africa invent then?

    So, you're saying: Even if you 'invent' the worst game ever - it's better than nothing at all?
    I tend to disagree.

    Its cool you do, but if you played it, i'm sure that mean, competitive streak would come to the fore and you would enjoy it. I dont understand Jukskei either, so we are equeal.
    AFL is an indegenous game the white man picked up and changed.
    Its been played in South Africa since 1898.

    Crowley old chap,i actually agree with you on this one.

    We call it aerial ping pong ,or hit and giggle here.

    The only real skill is their ability to kick the ball long distances,some of these players can boot a ball 60 metres plus,
    We dont see that happening in our rugby.

    Dude, I'm a HUGE footie fan and didn't even know it was played here - just shows you how many people know about it here...

    I don't have any idea how jukskei works... I believe you throw something from sandpit to sandpit.


    What 'mean streak'?

    Eh! No wonder it's raining here in winter

    Look, I was kidding when I meant the guys have no skills. I've seen some of the kicks they produce and it's pretty impressive.
    The game just seems to lack the structure I look for in any sport.
