A badass sport, not for the weak. Although it does involve more cardio readiness than American Football, the hits taken are not nearly as hard. American football hits have been Scientifically proven to be 4 times harder than a rugby hit. Pads are involved in American football, its is a nastier sport.
Either way, both are tougher than soccer, which is a joke. The comparison between rugby and soccer is that soccer players are Gentlemen off the field but not on the field. Conversely, Rugby players are gentlemen on the pitch but bad asses off the pitch.
Rugby, soccer, tough, Gentlemen, men, football, toughness
