[Extract] Australia is the current 'Touch' football world champion in both the Men's and Women's divisions. Determined to stay leaders in their field, relevant and specific training programmes were to be implemented in the lead up to the third World Cup in 1999. This necessitated a study to determine if recent rule changes to Touch had brought about significant changes to the physical demands of the game. Hearsay indicates that the game is played at a faster pace with more frequent interchanges since the inception of the 'no marker' rule in 1985 and the reduction from seven to six players on the field at any one time in 1996.
