They play it tough downunder...

Girls and women's rugby doesn't have a reputation for fisticuffs, but that doesn't mean it never happens (as those who went to last season's game against Eastern Counties will remember). However rarely will you ever see anything like the scenes those at an inter-school game in Australia last week (as reported in the Brisbane CourierMail).

Its a great article. The irony is that the organisers of the festival had gone to the trouble of keeping parents away from the games due to poor behaviour in the past - but it sounds like it was the teachers (and especially the female teachers) who were at least partly responsible for events kicking off!

(I know this was actually a rugby league tournament - but I doubt that anyone is going to claim that this could never happen in union).
