One of the most hardcore, badass games ever invented (so long as it's full contact), it's easily at least as violent as rugby, ice hockey or american football. It's a game for real men.
Lacrosse is played in the UK by boys and girls, due to a recent craze emerging especially around Manchester.
UK male Lacrosse is basically the same as US Lacrosse, with the same rules and full contact.
UK girls' Lacrosse does now have contact but only stick checking is allowed. Only Mixed Lacrosse is non-contact, in case the guys decapitate the girls.
US Boys - full contact, badass game
UK Boys - full contact, same badass game
UK Girls - a little bit of contact, not as badass
UK Mixed - no contact.yawn.
