This is a great idea suprised I'd never heard/thought of it before.

Just a pity that there doesn't seem to be much information out there about it or many clubs to play. Most of the state rec footy websites look like they are still being set up and currently lacking content. This will be great for people like me that have been looking for something like this for a while now. I have experimented with social Gaelic football, indoor soccer and ultimate disc, but I know many other people play touch rugby.

From what I can gather about the rules though, it is not really fair to limit forwards to kicking goals or restrict movement to zones. I think rotation of players is the best solution for this, because kicking goals is one of the things that everyone wants to do. Also, the game claims to be non-contact, but any aerial contest have a degree of contact and risk of injury - I wonder how they deal with this aspect, from what I can see there are no rules governing contested marks, spoiling a mark etc. other than standard AFL rules. Let me know if I am wrong about this.

I'd say with the right promotion, this game could grow pretty quickly.

Yep, I reckon it could grow very fast. I haven't seen it in action as yet so I'm not sure how they handle aerial contests to keep it non-contact.
