I'm confused because the sport is always getting brought up in here, so I thought it was some competitive Aussie Rules league or something. Add to that the lack of posts in the thread for the sport, and you have a confused Ashley.
It is rugby, Ashley.

rugby league is massively different from rugby union. you've basically got so many downs/tackles before you need to force another set of tackles or kick.

nrl.com should have live video for you!

it's rugby, but without playing to try to kick a penalty goal. the goal is to score tries.

It's just that all of the momentum is on the Swans, they're absolutely destroying. The Lions just can't keep their hands on the ball and are converting the times they get it into nothing.

FWIW, I prefer Rugby Union and can somehow get behind it while watching. It just seems that little bit more exciting.

Keep the faith, AFL games are capable of turning on their heads quite effortlessly, it only takes one passage of play.

i really, really want to enjoy union. it's got the right ideas, but it just misses for reasons i can't adequately describe.

and it's got nothing to do with my disdain for the rugby wankery that goes on in nz. it's just such a negative sport.

if it was anything like a true attempt to score tries, then yay.
