    Australian Rules. Apparently they run 6-8km per game as well have physical contests.

    Well... I would think rugby is pretty high up there...

    And I wouldn't say boxing, it might be tough, but there's tougher when it comes to fighting sports.

    American Football? They just run into each other whilst heavily padded.

    American football is not physically tough, theres a lot of stoppages for you to get your breath back, Squash and Badminton take a lot out of you, as its non stop running, and Rowing, thats tough.

    Squash and badminton aren’t hard, it’s just fairly high intensity endurance and skill. Frankly I find 90 minutes of football tougher than racquet sports. For the most physical sport, non-contact sports don’t compare. American football is certainly one of the hardest hitting sports. They need pads because they would do severe damage to themselves and each other if they didn’t wear them. For most physical, I would say American football, MMA, then Rugby or wrestling*. Some of the Rugby players preparing for the WC look almost as strong as an NFL lineman, although I doubt they would be as quick. Ice hockey might make the top 5 but I found Rugby a lot harder than hockey.

    I’ve never tried wrestling.

    Do they? How heavy is an average Aussie rules lineman, and what is his 40 yard dash time?

    I don't think Rugby and American football can be compared against each other in terms of most physical.

    The fitness and strength that comes with rugby is amazing and at international level you have to be at your best to get anywhere.

    If American football was to loose the padding and helmets (don't see why not?) and have one team that played the whole game (no defensive/offensive line changes) whilst having less stopages, then it could be better compared with rugby in terms of most physical.

    Midfield tends to be 85-95kg
    Forwards up 90-105kg
    Backs vary between the two.
    Ruckmen tend to be roughly just over 100kg.

    They're all quick, with just enough strength to not compromise the speed. Therefore the impacts are just as high, only they have no pads so they actually feel it and it'll take at least a few seconds for them to get up.

    which are sports hence their inclusion in the olympics

    plus gymnastics is very physically demanding too but i remember a sports chart in secondary school which put swimming at the top twice as much energy as football
