    I just read in the Telegraph that there are preliminary plans to play a hybrid union/league game at ANZ.

    Does anyone know the rules of the hybrid game?

    Hopefully if will be more of a success then the Aussie Rules- Gaelic Football farce...... At least both codes use the same shaped ball.

    have seen a few mins of the concept played out once on tv, gus gould was rambling about it.
    Basically from what i gathered its a mix of rugby league and union. From what i saw they alternate the tackles each time between a league play the ball and a rugby play the ball. limited tackles, scrums where rugby scrums, line outs for certain things, etcc...

    Basically it looked stupid![hr]
    Here is a video. It was trialled at brookie.

    IMO this is just stupid. Rugby League basically is a hybrid, it's a derivative and a far superior one

    Quote of the year from Dywer: "If we stand still we'll go backwards".

    Looks like Golden Point to me. We both posted at the same time. You just used your position as the creator of the site to edge ahead!
    I prefer to think of it as great minds thinking alike.

    I'd actually go watch the game. I was a big fan of union when I was younger, and a huge fan of league now. If they reduced the kicking in Union it would be a better game.

    Excited to see how it fares
