An awesome game requiring teamwork, fitness and copious amounts of hatred for your fellow humanity. Points are scored by touching the ball down past the opponent's goal line (called a try-worth 5 points), or kicking the ball through the H-shaped goal posts above the crossbar (a conversion or penalty kick, worth 2 and 3 points respectively) Demanding and lots of fun. Union, although slower than League, has less annoying stoppages, and more forwards which can only be a good thing (silly backs, always knocking on the ball and being unappreciative of the hard work we do to win it).
Joe McGeneric: So how was rugby this weekend?
Aggressive McProp: Great. I snapped several vertebrate of the opposition.
Joe: So you won?
Agressive: Nah. But who cares about points?

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

"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!

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'.

1.) The world's greatest sport, for men and women alike.
2.) The only sport where none of the fans dare to mess with you after the game if you lose.
3.) The sport you either have to be very brave or very stupid to play (or very drunk ;)

Contrary to popular belief, women who play rugby aren't all lesbians.

Last season, my rugby team experienced the following injuries:
2 broken legs, a broken foot, 7 concussions, 2 bloody noses, 2 rolled ankles, innumerable cuts, gouges, and bruises, a bruised sternum, a bruised collarbone, and one hospitalization. We only lost 2 players for the upcoming seasons.
