Never even knew they played it there. Was a couple of players with decent skills such as being able to side step and flick pass.
All though still a very amateur sport in Russia.

Definitely some decent players there. Thinking atleast a few of are expats. But, from my experience playing and viewing Afl in Europe I can tell everyone that the level of rugby league in russia is far higher than the level of any Afl played in Europe. Pretty much for sure.

Basic skill level, is that when you can drop the ball as much as you like and get a point when you miss a shot at goal? :lol:

Yeah is hard to tell. I think Rugby League would go down well in Russia as a spectator sport.

The tackles are like NRL, so I can see how you would think that.

Real tackles, no the fluffy soft AFL ones :cool:

AFL is too soft for russians?

They competed at the 2018 Euro Cup. Allegedly 5 teams or so in country.

They do the exact same thing in league! Except with out an opponent tackling them & from 6 meter side ways throws whilst jogging in a forwards direction with a larger rubber ball, not a leather one & with grips on the ball to control it better
