The ability to kick an Australian Rules football is the most fundamental skill of the game.
The kicking skills of the very best Aussie Rules footballers can be simply amazing to watch. Using either leg they can kick a ball with a high degree of precision to a fast moving team mate or though a set of goals that can be as much as 60 metres away, and often whilst highly fatigued or moving at high speed themselves in order to avoid the defensive pressure of a chasing opponent.
But - as you might expect with such a skilled task - there's more to kicking the ball than simply banging it onto your boot and hoping for the best!
