Is anyone watching this.

I watched water polo as one of my past sports and today was very interesting game. Italy lost by the biggest surprise Romania. Great game, too bad Italy lost at home but that's sport.

I enjoy waterpolo, Italy are usually a pretty good force but have had some weird results lately.

Hehe, I saw it first. Would have moved it but my computer was struggling to load Google let alone move an LF topic Twisted Evil

All I know about waterpolo is that I once guessed correctly in a quiz how many players make a waterpolo team. If I remember right, it is 7.

Australia and Sebia are now in second position with 2 points. In the last match of the first session Serbia defeats Kazakhstan (20-3), who is now closing the group with 0 points.

the groups:
GROUP A South Africa (RSA), Canada (CAN), Germany (GER), Hungary (HUN)

Apologies for the joking, but in all seriousness, I have absolutely no knowledge of water polo. Is there a quick way of explaining rules to me?

Basic rules

Water polo is played as a 6 on 6 game plus goalkeepers, so each team has 7 in the water at a time. Each water polo game is made up of four, 7-minute, quarters. The half time brake only lasts for 5 min. Substitutions may be made at anytime during a game (like hockey) but the players must make the exchange in a specific area behind their own goal line, called the re-entry area. The game starts with all players lined up at their own goal line. The referee blows a whistle and throws the ball into play at mid-pool. The swimmers sprint to their positions, with some players from each team swimming to get possession of the ball. A player is only allowed to touch the ball with one hand. Players aren't allowed to hold the ball underwater at no time, even if it is because of the other player holding your arm down. The bottom or sides of the pool cannot be used or touched. There is a 35-second shot clock; a shot must be taken before time expires or ball possession changes.

Fouls

You cannot push off a defensive player (or at least let the ref see you doing so, but who can tell with all of that water splashing around right?). All fouls result in a change in possession of the ball or a penalty shot if it occurred within a zone 5-meters from the goal. There are minor, major and brutal fouls. Minor fouls results in just a change in possession, major foul results in the guilty player removal from the game for a 20-seconds and a brutal foul allows the ref to hold the player under water as long as he wants :) brutal foul results in 4-minutes ejection for intentionally hitting or kicking someone; a player could also be ejected from the game, with the missing player replaced after 20-seconds. Players getting more than two major fouls are out of the game. When possession changes, the offense gets a free throw from the spot of the foul, an unhindered chance to pass the ball to another player within about 3-seconds.

Pretty hard game. The fouls underwater are from kicking in the balls to squeezing nipples affraid

... and scratching with very long fingernails, punches to the kidney and livers, pulling down the swimming shorts (which is why most players wear double shorts), headbutts when in a clinch and so on.
The sport is incredibly physically challenging, and if you decide to take up training there's probably no better work-out regime for the entire body, but other than that there is no real appeal (unless you like a 100+ kilo monsters trying to drown you, in which case whooohhhooo)
