Ultimate International Rules Fight Compilation

The long awaited release of the huge international rules compilation i promised some time ago is finally here. Footage comes from all games from 2002-2008, however the picture quality of the 2004/2005 games are less than perfect as they're from the bigpond website. Enjoy, if you don't mind 6 and a half minutes of the repetitive beat of darude's sandstorm. Still, it goes ok and isn't as cliché as 'boom' or 'eye of the tiger' as seen on so many montage videos. As a final word - Brian White is better than Michael Collins and Ger Canning is better than Marty Morrisey.

Football rules

Football is one of the most popular sports in the world. Often referred to as 'the beautiful game', it involves two teams of eleven players, a spherical ball and a rectangular pitch marked out by touch lines and goal lines. Play starts with a kick-off from the centre circle. The international governing body FIFA organises world cup tournaments every four years.VIDEOGRAPHIC

Yes, this game actually has rules and here they are

Ireland win the 2011 International Rules Series over Australia convincingly

Australia were defeated by Ireland in both tests by an overall amount of 65 points over the two tests. Many brawls and fights occurred during the 3rd Term.


NO CHANCE of winning the International Rules series, Australia tried to win the fight in an ugly 1.13.5 (50) to 0.7.8 (29) loss to Ireland.

Needing to win by 45 points to claim the series trophy after their opening game capitulation last week, Australia opted to play the aggression card - only to be met by a lot of yellow ones.

At one stage it appeared a game of International Rules had broken out at a scuffle as Australia racked up more yellow cards in the third term (three) than they scored points (one).

In all, a total of six players received the yellow vest on the way to the sin bin - including five in a spiteful third term alone.

Somehow Australian captain Brad Green stayed on the field after being involved in a series of altercations, including one before the game started.

Australia's physical approach appeared to have early results when they banged in the opening two three-point overs via Green and Mitch Robinson.

But from there Robinson and Green turned more heads in the amount of scuffles they were involved in as Ireland kicked into another gear.

Ireland led at the first break by just four points but extended the buffer to 1.8.4 (34) to 0.6.5 (23) by halftime before all hell broke loose in the third.

At one stage an all-in brawl threatened to erupt as Irish players reacted angrily to late shots by Australians that left Joe McMahon in a crumpled heap.

When the dust settled Australia's Angus Monfries, Mark Nicoski, Robbie Gray were all yellow-carded while Ireland's Finian Hanley and vice-captain Ciaran McKeever were also given their marching orders.

Ireland's Michael Murphy had been sin binned late in the second term.

The bully tactics spectacularly backfired for the hosts who managed just six points in the second half.

Indeed when Ben McGlynn potted over an over late in the last term, it marked the first three-pointer by Australia in 25 minutes.

The difference in skill level between the teams was summed up by Leighton Glynn's superb goal for Ireland in the second term.

Glynn cheekily chipped to himself, rounded goalkeeper Matt Suckling and soccered through the only goal of the match.

Ireland avenged their 0-2 series loss last year in spectacular style, winning not only the trophy but also with a 65-point superior aggregate.

For Ireland, Tommy Walsh and Steven McDonnell kicked three overs while Australia's Zac Smith also kicked three.

Full-time scores:

IRELAND 0.3.3 1.8.4 1.10.5 1.13.5 (50)
AUSTRALIA 0.2.2 0.6.5 0.6.6 0.7.8 (29)

Ireland: Goals: L Glynn.
Overs: S McDonnell 3, T Walsh 3, K Donaghy 2, M Murphy 2, J McMahon, M Murphy, T Kennelly.

Australia: Goals: Nil.
Overs: Z Smith 3, B Green 2, M Robinson, B McGlynn.

Crowd: 12,545 at Metricon Stadium, Gold Coast.
Series: Ireland wins 2-0.
