Shiat, just watching rugby is painful.  I played football for years and no way in hell would I get on a rugby field.

If that makes me a puss then excuse me whilst I apply a bit of Vagisil.

It's not your unwillingness to play rugby that makes you a puss, it's your use of the term 'whilst.'

Nice job cracking on league, subby.

I mean, if you're not going to ruck, you give up 2/3 of the chance to get obliterated by some 300 pound Pacific Islander who somehow manages to run like a gazelle. Why bother, right?

After the first two weeks of Rugby, you no longer feel pain.

On Fark, "rugbyjock" is already seriously brokeback.

The study determined that collisions might be causing most of the injuries sustained while playing? Who'd have ever thought that?
