A medium sized town in the county of Warwickshire, UK. Rugby is where the game of the same name originated and has at some time been connected to famous people such as Rupert Brooke, Lewis Carroll and Guy Fawkes. Also home of Rugby School, the school at which the book, Tom Brown's School Days was set.
You know it's a game but do you know it's a town also?

We spend our spare time getting bashed, crunched, punched, stood on, gouged, bitten, crushed, twisted and bent.

And we love it. I don't see a problem with it.

Rugby Union: Great sport played by 15 hard bastard athletes. Lots of variation in play and tactics.

Rugby League: Version of Union simplified for the mind workings of Northern Chav followers. Mainly consists of one man hurling himself at 3 opponents 5 times then kicking the ball.
Rugby League: "And it's the 5th play the ball.... what's he gonna do?.... Oh he's gonna kick it!"
