A game like football, except for men.
No pads, very few stopages in play, who can argue?

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?

A real sport that involves no frickin pansy ass pads like american football. Kick the habit, play rugby.
Joe went to play rugby to break his face in. His other friend Charles went to play american football and got a bruise.

A thugs game played by gentlemen. The worlds greatest game, not like the pussyish 'sports' of football(socccer) and american football. In rugby you don't wear girly padding and you definatly don't go down if someone breathes on you (soccer). There is no stabbing in the back, what happens on the pitch stays on the pitch. Basically, in rugby the two teams kick the shit out of each other for 80 minutes and then they go and talk about what a great time it was in the clubhouse over copious amounts of beer. Also if there is a fight, no-one stands around watching, no no no, they all pile in for a good old scrap.
As a sport, rugby shits all over all other 'sports'.

"In our country, true teams rarely exist ... social barriers and personal ambitions have reduced athletes to dissolute cliques or individuals thrown together for mutual profit ... Yet these rugby players, with their muddied, cracked bodies, are struggling to hold onto a sense of humanity that we in America have lost and are unlikely to regain. The game may only be to move a ball forward on a dirt field, but the task can be accomplished with an unshackled joy and its memories will be a permanent delight. The women and men who play on that rugby field are more alive than too many of us will ever be. The foolish emptiness we think we perceive in their existence is only our own." - Victor Cahn
When you play rugby youve got nothing to lose ......well, except a leg!

It is American football minus everything that soccer fans say sucks about American football. It is also soccer minus everything that American football fans say sucks about soccer. It is a compromise that happens to be better than the alternatives. Rugby keeps it's violence on the field unlike soccer and it doesn't apologize for it like the NFL. Further more, it's culture is all inclusive. Ruggers don't care if you are black, white, tall, short, gay, straight, fat, skinny, or even if you just suck at rugby. If you can take the beating you are welcome to play. There are lots of rules but the only one that matters is if you get ejected for fighting you owe the guy you fought a beer.
No one cares that you suck at rugby. We'll sub you in for the last ten minutes and if you don't need to go to the hospital you can get drunk with us after the game.

A highly skilled game. Players rely on each other to work as a unit and to support each other in open play. you cant fall over if someone messes up your hair (like in soccer). and no homo helmets (football). union more flowing than league, but both good. England to win world cup, come on the boys!!!
man 1 - do you follow rugby?
man 2 - no, i follow soccer.
man 1 - twat.
