Can you imagine it? It would be carnage! All those 'non-swimmers' have seven shades kicked out of them by the Aussies, the Kiwis, the Springboks and the Brits...bring on Sudan! :twisted:

Ultimate frisbee is somewhat akin to a cross between Rugby and Netball but with a.... well a frisbee.

Not 100% on rules but basically you can't run with the Ball/frisbee, and you have to advance it up the field and have a member of your team catch it when in a specified "goal" area.

Not a bad game actually, but surely Rugby has to come first.

We could also go the other way and vote for Twister of course.

At least Rugby is a sport where we could pretty much guarantee victory going to an Empire team eh Rangi, unless those dastardly Frogs stick there garlicky spanner in the works.

Besides the fact that there is enough very very talented amatuer players around , what about the Army or Combined Services representing GB at the Olympics ...nice thought huh :?: :D
