Photos: Aussie Rules Football players romp in the surf

Ben Kennedy, Brodie Grundy and Tim Broomhead

We have written before about the grand tradition in Australian Rules Football of players doing recovery sessions as part of their training. This involves shirtless athletic men and bodies of water. The teams are in the offseason now but still doing some training. With it being late spring Down Under, it's a perfect time to goof around in the surf with your teammates, male bonding style.

These photos by Michael Dodge of Getty Images are of the Collingwood Magpies training session at St Kilda Sea Baths on Nov. 29, 2012 in Melbourne, Australia.
