(Laughs) In the next few weeks I'll put up the cycling race I shot the other weekend, too.

Excellent series again Ian. Looks like it was a pretty rough and tumble game from your pix. Well captured mate.

Unlike the American game, no protective gear!

He actually copped the whole forearm, probably a hairline fracture, concussion and missing two teeth, but jumped back up and played the game, Jpzk!

They make 'em tough in the northern suburbs.

Thanks, mate, I'm cancelling my Main Event subscription to the fights on Foxtel, I can go down and see this stuff every Saturday for practically nothing.

I'm afraid the culture is that is a sign of weakness, Reh, so only a couple of players over the years have put on thin leather helmets.

No one at all in the professional league, currently.

Reh makes a good point above … Australian Rules is such a good sport for us photographers because helmets aren't worn, we can see the emotions of the players.

Is that Brent Harvey playing in the suburban league? You'd know you'd drawn the short straw if you found yourself tagging him for the day!
