Murderball: Head to Head with Australia's Toughest Team
'These Aussie champions are the toughest, most dangerous sportsmen you're ever likely to see. They hit hard, they play fast, they know no fear.' 60 Minutes
They call it Murderball. An impossibly brutal game that you can't believe is a Paralympic sport. Players in reinforced steel chairs smash into each other with deadly intent and animal ferocity. You expect massive casualties in every game. But as one of the players says, 'What have we got to lose? It's not like we're going to break our necks again!'
Australian Ryley Batt, a 20-year old who was born with no legs and webbed hands, is considered the world's best player. He and his colleagues are determined to become the No 1 Murderball team in the world. And after what they've been through in their lives, no one could question their ability to smash through all obstacles in their path.
But Murderball's more than a game. It's these players' lives. Each and every one of these men has a hell of a story to tell, a story of courage against overwhelming odds and humour in the face of despair. This uncompromising, take-no-prisoners team's dream to achieve world domination will give you an adrenaline rush - and move and inspire you like no other.
