What is the rationale behind disallowing forward laterals?

There's no such thing as a "forward lateral"--that's a contradiction in terms. If you throw the ball to another player who is closer to the opposing end zone than you are--even if he's only closer by one step--that's a forward pass. If you throw the ball to another player who isn't closer to the opposing end zone than you are--a player who is even with you or behind you--that's a lateral.

If there was no prohibition against 'forward laterals' then the game would become simply a game of 'keep away', with players routinely tossing the ball to any available teammate anywhere on the field. Then what do you do with the 'pass interference' rule? If a player gets blocked just before he's tossed the ball, would we award him 15 yards and a first down?

Allowing a 'forward lateral' would fundamentally change the nature of the game.

What is size of an australian football field metric measurement?

Australian Rules Football- commonly called Aussie Rules, AFL (for Australian Football League) or just footy, is played on cricket ovals which do not have a standard size. There will be two arcs coming from the goalposts measuring 50 metres and in between these is a centre square measuring 50 metres. Usually there will be extra space in between these depending on the size of the oval so a field would be >150 metres, however sometimes (for instance at the Sydney Cricket Ground) the centre square shaves a few metres off the 50 metre lines making a total field length just under 150 metres.
