The Eton wall game
This mishmash of rugby and soccer has been played in one spot at an exclusive English private school for around 300 years. It happens on the same strip of land with a long, slightly curved wall down one side and often devolves into a multi-limbed pile of shrieking schoolboys. Two teams try to get the ball into a scoring zone and then kick it against a target (a garden door for one team and a tree for the other). Sounds simple, until you realise that the method of actually moving the ball into position involves all the players on both teams piling up along the wall and slowly inching the ball up field. If you like wild games with lots of scoring, maybe this isnt the game for you to watch. The last goal scored at the biggest game of the year on St Andrew’s Day was way back in 1909. Seriously.
