Australia is home to some of the toughest and most exciting sports in the world. Australian Rules Football, more commonly known as footy, and Rugby are two of the biggest Australian sports out there. These sports are the country’s clear favorite spectator sport, with the most attendees and viewers than other major sports leagues in the country.
Both sports are actually quite similar, save for some differences. Compared to the football, we all know where only goalkeepers can touch the ball with their hands, in rugby and footy, players cradle the ball. In rugby, players are only allowed to pass to their side or behind them. In footy, forward passes are allowed, but only punt-kicking or handballing are allowed. The scoring systems are also very different. In rugby, you can score through a try (5 points), a conversion kick (2 points), or a drop goal (3 points). There are four goalposts on each side in footy, and if the ball is kicked in between the two center goal posts, a main goal is awarded (6 points). If it goes in between the outer goalposts, a behind goal is awarded (1 point).
