A RUGBY CRITIC ON AUSTRALIAN FOOTBALL.

Comparison between the Rugby and Aus-
tralian games is apt to be forced during the
season by the presence in Australia of the
English team. In due time the question of
superiority will no doubt be definitely settled
in New South Wales, which, from being once
entirely Rugby, now devotes its atten-
tion largely to the Australian game,
which in both the northern and southern
ends of the colony is making rapid strides.
The fittest will, no doubt, survive. In the
meantime, it is desirable that wherever a
comparison is made it should be a strictly
fair one. In New Zealand, where two Vic-
torian footballers have lately been engaged
in teaching the members of the English team
our rules, several scratch matches at the
Australian game have been played, and
the writers upon football in the New
Zealand papers have taken advantage of
the opportunity to institute comparison be-
tween the two games. Remembering that
those playing the Australian game were for
the most part novices, the comparison could
hardly be otherwise than unfavourable to
it, and, indeed, under the circumstances, it
was foolish to attempt a comparison at all.
The point as already stated may be much
more fairly settled in New South Wales where
both games are played to something like per-
fection and in many of the inland towns, such
as at Maitland for example, the Australian
and Rugby games flourish side by side. But
to accept a chance Rugby game played in
Melbourne, or a scratch Australian match
in New Zealand as throwing any light upon
the point, is carrying the enthusiasm of the
partisan to extremes. As a sample of the
criticism to which the Australian game has
been subject, the following comments
of a writer in the Weekly Press are interest-
ing. In the first place, the title Australasian
game is termed an impertinence since the
game is not played in New Zealand. As a
matter of fact however, the game bears no
such title, and throughout the Australian
colonies is known as the Australian game.
The writer continues as follows :-
' An old footballer here described the game to me
on Monday as follows :-' The Melbournites obtained
the rules of all the games of football ever played,
picked out the worst points in each and putting them
together called that the Victorian game.
(Abridged)
Taking the objections in detail, it
is considered a blot upon the Aus-
tralian game that passing, otherwise
throwing from hand, described as one
of the beauties of the Rugby game, is
not permitted. The objection, if really
it be an objection, can scarcely be sus-
tained, for passing is allowed in our
game, only bearing in mind that the game is
football, and not handball,
the players pass
the ball with their feet. In this, indeed,
rests one of the chief indictments against
Rugby, viz., that what with tucking the ball
under the arm and running the length of the
ground, or engaging when collared in what
is elegantly termed a "scrum," the game be-
comes a race, a go-as-you-please contest, a
wrestling match--anything you may name, in-
deed, except football.


Fault is also found with
the Australian (game) being obliged to bounce the ball
as he runs. We who have seen the Aus-
tralian game at its best know that bouncing
the ball does not affect a player's speed when
he becomes proficient in it. Were it other-
wise, the man who runs with the ball would
have a poor chance of covering any distance
with teams of twenty in the field. It
requires, however, more intelligence and
cleverness than merely hugging the ball

and running away with it, and in so
far tends to lessen the elements of "brute
force and blind ignorance"
Oh dear referring to rL as chuckball .
Then go & make a tool out of yourself by posting an article that was printed about 7 yrs before RL was born .
You're a bright one

Rugby League wasn’t born, it was a direct breakaway from Union, most of the Rules Were initially the same.
Rugby League didn’t get to Australia until 1908, that’s 20 years, I guess that’s how you count crowds too!

The crap in your name is the one of the few accurate things you post.

The skill required to miss a goal in the fumbling game but still get a point for twying weel hard!!! Incwedibool!!

Oh.....And welcome back idiot. Your village still got ya on the banned list pal??
You mean your mate Leroy? Call him what you want his melt down of denial has been rather amusing!

Again league came from rugby hence the Rugby name used in both versions of the game.
No deflection. Scrumball led to Chuckball. But crappy keep being tiresome.

Well Crappy
Again league camp from union.
And the points made, chucking, hugging the ball, barging, brute force, blind ignorance and rarely kicking are applicable to both.
Neither can be considered REAL Football, because, you know, ball, foot, kicking.
NRL ave kicks per game 14, AFL 431.
Enlighten us all on how NRL can be considered to be a Real Football Code.

Can and did, the elements critiqued are relevant for league and union, league was not an invention, but a direct breakaway from union mostly using the same rules.

About Rugby League
From the history of Rugby League
“Rugby League is a full contact sport played by two teams of thirteen players on a rectangular grass field. One of the two codes of rugby football, it originated as a split from the Rugby Football Union in England in 1895 over the issue of payments to players. Its rules were then gradually changed.
For one who considers all Australian Rules followers to be narrow minded, bubbled, insular etc, etc, you do come across as a bit of a hypocrite.

And your school yard tactics of attacking the man and not the ball demonstrates the level of your ability to argue reasonably and rationally. Perhaps a count of your “missed tackles” would be enlightening.

People would hardly know of Australian Rules overseas - or really care one way or another. Same for RL for the most part I would think.

Lets put 8 upright sticks on a cricket ground and call it football, lets allow players to bounce a ball that is not round on the ground with their hands and call it football... :lol: Fark do you guys realise how stupid that sounds. =D :mrgreen:


Is like saying lets make horizontal goals and put it on a baseball field and call the game football. Same logic as AFL. :lol:

Your just like a make believe form of football. :(/

The AFL footy show even has it's logo with a guy holding a ball with hands. :cool:
