Modified Rules Demo Videos

We owe our thanks to the Northern Football League who produced the following clips and have allowed us to use them as an educational tool. Please note that there are several differences between our league and the NFL – notably that we use volunteer parent umpires, not league umpires as used in these videos, and that the distance run before having a bounce is 10m in the SMJFL (not 15 as per video).
