Australian Rules Football
Australian rules football is a sport between two teams of 18 who move an oval ball by kicking, handballing and running with the ball. A distinctive feature is the mark where a player who catches the ball from a kick is awarded possession. The original rules are attributed to the sportsman Tom Wills to form a "football club with a code of laws" to keep cricketers fit during winter. The earliest recorded match was played on 15 June 1858 between Scotch College and Melbourne Grammar School.
