Have You Ever Played Jugger? (Video)

Inspired from the movie The Salute of the Jugger, Australian post-apocalyptic film directed by David Webb Peoples and starring Rutger Hauer and Joan Chen, Jugger as a sport is gaining more and more popularity in the world, especially in Germany.

There are teams in Australia, Ireland, England, Denmark, Spain and Costa Rica and a couple of variations of the sport are played in the USA.

Some follow the International version (IE: Germany, Ireland etc) while others use a model that more closely resembles The Game that is played in the movie.

Basically, Jugger looks like a cross between American football and gladiator fights. Two teams of five field players try to score more points than your opponents within a time limit.
