Two teams of 75 (yup, 75) attempt to topple each other’s pole. There’s really no other way to describe this: one squad just bum rushes the other at a time. There don’t appear to be many provisos when it comes to defending and attacking - check out the below video for the head kicks, tackles, and punches.

As for the rules - if the attacking team gets their opponents’ standard down before time runs out, they… win? We guess? This seems like the kind of event that you get all liquored up for, think is a great idea, and it totally is for about four seconds, which is about the length of time it should take someone to mash your groin in a scrum like this.
