It may come as a surprise to some to learn that there’s a Jugger Canberra group.
Most of you however will have either never heard of, or completely forgotten, the 1989 film The Blood of Heroes, released in Australia as The Salute of the Jugger.
Jugger is a fictional sport from the future:
A violent game has grown popular, a game that basically involves beating your opponents to a pulp whilst trying to stick a dog’s skull on a spike at the end of the field, and not get pulped yourself. This game is played in teams of five, and the players in these teams are known as “Juggers”.
So I’ll admit to being surprised by the real world existence of an Australian Jugger League.
The local lads, seeking to gain access to the big league, train in Glebe Park (where else?) on Sundays from 11am.
If you’re interested they’ve even got a facebook group.
