Man 2. Yeah, Andy Farrell broke his nose and carried on playing.
Man 1. What a guy.
Initially formed as a breakaway from Rugby Union in the early 20th century as a way for players to be paid instead of the governing body pocketing all the profits, Rugby League has long since surpassed it's inferior cousin in all aspects.
A working class game of 13 men a side, there is no tougher sport on the planet. The men who play Rugby League are the true Gladiators of the 20th and 21st centuries.
An 80 minute game that is generally completed, with stoppages, in under 100 minutes, Rugby League is a test of skill, fitness, co-ordination and strength that no other game can match.
Imagine American Football played without the padding or the incessant stoppages and you get some idea of the pace and toughness of Rugby League.
Watch it and you WILL love it.
God: Ah Satan. Will you never learn? Union folk are weak and that is why you have command over those lesser people.
Unfortunately in Halifax, we have a Rugby League team who get all the press and money over the local football team and are supported by Bell Ends who diminish the enjoyment of the game for everyone else.
