    I always found a hockey stick to that small bone just under your ankle constituted unreasonable contact...it's like a funny bone.

    Personally glad they ditched the offside rule, makes the game far better imo. Great to watch too.

    As for being a non contact sport, being taken out by an opposition goalie is decidedly contact, and I certainly wasn't thinking it was girls sport when our fullback was hospitalised after the impact of a ball to the chest lifted him off the ground. Nor was I feeling decidedly safe when my team mate passed the ball into my face. Probably not the greatest pass I've ever received.

    Hoping Australia can actually beat Germany here, third times the charm.
