International Rules Football is a hybrid sport invented so that Australian football players (Aussie Rules) can play games against Irish football players (Gaelic football). There are no regular club games or leagues, just one-off games or tournaments. The rules are a compromise between the two football codes. A round ball as used in Gaelic football is used compared to the oval AFL ball. The games are played on a rectangular (Gaelic football) field, rather than the oval of AFL. The Aussies get to tackle, but only between the shoulders and thighs, which is otherwise banned in Gaelic football. The goals are two large posts and two small posts, as in Australian rules, though a crossbar and goal net is incorporated as in Gaelic football. Passing the ball in the goal net scores six points, over the crossbar three points and between a large post and a small post one point.
