Excellent game, shame the Hawks didn't win though :( Superb atmosphere with all the fans mingled together. This is a 'must do' when in Melbourne, even if you don't support any teams.

No visit to Melbourne in Winter is complete without watching a game of AFL, preferably at the MCG, and preferably a game involving some of the league's heavyweight teams such as Hawthorn, Collingwood, Geelong or Richmond. Don't understand the rules? Doesn't matter. Just savour the...More

This game is not soccer: the players move the ball with all the contact "civility" allows; rules encourage lateral and forward passing and kicking forward to teammates and to score; no downfield blocking, but with lots of contact and tackling. It is less violent than...More
