Yirrganydji name: Yunggay dabay
Pronunciation: Joong-gay dub-ay
Meaning of Yirrganydji name: To run and throw

The game area is set up similar to a touch football field with two score lines at each end. The aim is for the player to run as far as possible trying to cross the score line without being touched by the other team.

You can pass the ball to someone else on your team before you are touched and they can then try and score. If the ball goes to ground please no diving just reach down and start running to your line.
