    Yes, but a pretty impressive list in response to a previous post.

    Its actually a very skilful game and includes heading as well. I think a lot of modern trends in AFL have borrowed from tactics used in topline soccer eg building a wall of defenders right out from the box who take away all of the space from attackers and adding outriders to bring the ball straight back in if defenders try to clear the ball. Sounds like Richmond and the Dees to me! We know coaches like Clarko have spent plenty of time studying these tactics and even spent their off-season visiting these fabled clubs. This cross-fertilisation of ideas and tactics across Codes will continue as things become more professional.

    I reckon professional field hockey has taken some tactics from AFL.
