Not(contrary to popular belief) a contact sport-

A game for Piano-Lifters AND Piano Players - can you think of any other sport that can say that?

American footballers get beaten with rugs, then they go and have jarrs of peanut butter for a half-time snack.

Rugby is a real mans game, American football has more padding than 10 fat Americans in a bedshop. The French are dirty rugby players...and also really gay.

A very fun sport, kind of like football but with no pads, tighter rules on tackles, no blocking, and no forward passes. for some reason rugby fans repeatedly hate on american football and say that its a pussy sport and involves no skill, despite the fact that pretty much all american football fans show the sport of rugby respect and never hate because rugby is a very complicated and difficult sport.
most rugby players are mad haters

You need to be fit and agile to play rugby. No pads like in Gridiron. Greatest team to exist is the All Blacks (New Zealand) and the Wallabies (Australia). England think theyre good but they arent.

The game that is harder than soccer or American Football to play
We don't have pads, we have a mouthguard, boots, shirt, shorts and optional headgear that isn't metal. It's soft.
We don't fall over when a stiff breeze blows, we actually have big hits etc.
The greatest country for this is New Zealand. The us could be good if more people played
Wanna play rugby?
Yeah sure, it's the greatest game in history

a respectable sport. Until these fans insult Australian Rules Football atrociously on this site. This shames the sport into nothing but an excuse to for prison rapists to get fresh air and grab testicles.
dude 1: Hey rugby is great!!!

dude 2: was, until I found out some fans are trolls who love to rip on the Australian Rules Football fans and the game. Now this proves that a distrubing majority of fans and players and former or current rapists/misfits in normal society.

A sport involving 15-a-side teams that originated in the UK, but is often criticised eslewhere due to its 'rough-and-tumble' nature, ie. you could walk off the pitch with several bones broken after the 80 minutes. It requires the mindset of stone and extreme physical shape, especially lower body and abdomen. Most rugby players start from a very early age in the UK and Oceana due to how 'specialist' most of the skills needed are. Despite the fact that playing rugby is by far more physically demanding than Football (Soccer), the players are paid less than the afore-mentioned counterpart, meaning that it is less financially rewarding to play than other mainstream sports, yet has its own culture that most of the 'born-and-bred' players live by, commonly referred to (at least in my area, this is a geographically dependant phrase) as "Scrum Down, Drink Up". No matter what happens on the field, you can still share several pints with the guy who speared you.
1. "Hey guys! Newcastle Falcons need a new Flanker, I can finally play professional Rugby!"

2. “I like to think I play rugby as it should be played - there are no yellow or red cards in my collection - but I cannot say I'm an angel.” - Jonny Wilkinson OBE, England Fly-Half.
