Freeball is a new sport created by Barret Wilson of the United Kingdom in 2018. The game is related to rugby league and union but without line-outs, scrums, rucks, mauls or play-the-balls. No kicking of the ball. Only one method of scoring (getting the ball over the score line) the ball is released on tackle completion. Next attacker passes dead ball into play. Six tackles then a handover of the ball. Ten players with up to ten substitutes. No goal-posts needed. No technology, refs decision final. 80 minutes play, if scores are even then next score wins. As near to non-stop action as possible.
