Rugby union has a defensive wall set up and possession has to go backwards. It's a slow moving game and the ref is usually right at the contest. AFL is a 360 degrees game and is much much quicker. If you concede possession in a centre clearance it can quickly result in a goal.Sure you can. Rugby Union, a game of tackling, has some very strict rules about tackling, when you can join, when you can't, what direction you can join a tackle from, when you must release a tackle and start again etc etc.
Might not be easy at first, but eventually to has to be easier to watch and enjoy the game than it is today.
The umps just have to get better at paying the free kicks when they are actually there. And stop reaming us all the time. Not that hard.
