THE RULES
Mudlarks football is fully umpired and accredited and governed by the National, and Victorian Metropolitan AFLMasters Football Leagues.
The rules are the same as open age AFL football with some variations to protect players from injury, and get to work on a Monday.
For example, players cannot raise their knees in a rucking or marking contest.
Only two players are allowed in the ruck.
Slinging is banned.
The umpires will penalize too vigorous play.
Our League enforces the green, yellow, and red card Send-Off-Rule.
Itís competitive footy but it is far less aggressive than open-age suburban footy.
Usually by the end of your match, you will have had a good chat with your opponent - itís that sort of footy.
