Trugo or TruGo is a game which was invented in the railway repairs workshops in Melbourne, Australia. The aim of the game is to score points by striking a rubber ring, which is called a whell, with a mallet through goal posts.

Trugo is usually played outdoors in lawns, 90 feet in length for men, and 70 feet in length for women. The players stand on a rubber mat and face away from the goals.

The mallet is then swung between the legs to strike the rubber ring, or a wheel. After the first player has struck four wheels, the players then swap roles. Each of the players have 24 shots, 12 from both ends.
