History: Occasionally World Footy News has been sent stories about someone giving Aussie Rules clinics in Russia, but there is not currently any active clubs. In 2009, the organisers of the EU Cup announced that they'd had a submission from a team to represent Russia, based around members of the "Threshers" Rugby Club from Moscow. However, this side didn't eventuate, and we haven't heard any further news.
Outlook (2010): As yet, nothing to report on, but we'll keep you posted.
