It's like American Football, but they actually play a sport instead of standing around talking about what to do.

Rugby is a big game of Red Rover with a ball.

Bathe them and bring them back to my bunker, with all due respect.

The English try in the first half should have been whistled down as a forward pass.

/well done England and Canada both.  Women rugby players both arouse and scare me.

Think a never-ending option play and you're halfway there.

Crumpet? No one involved in cricket understands crumpet.

I initially missed the first line, and thought you were being grossly uncouth about both the women's and the men's teams . . .

/carn whoever's playing the All Blacks!

I'd be interested to see that, if you've got a link?

1. Every game includes a couple of hookers and there's always a bit of rucking right there on the field.

2. Despite attempts to encourage diversity, the best players are still All Blacks.

3. If you try to understand rugby but you just can't, then league is the game for you.

To understand rugby, you need to play rugby.
And, you are in luck! There is a rugby team out there who'd love to let you have a run.

Sure, some of the other comments above have grains of the truth of the true glory of Rugby. And it is possible to be a fan of rugby and watch the game without ever having laced on a pair of boots, but...
the true joy and full understanding of the game comes when (having just played 80 exhausting minutes) you are standing at the bar and your opposite number comes over and buys you a beer and congratulates you on that tackle that left him gasping for air or the scrum engage which sent him backwards.

The beauty of rugby is that it is still possible to play as an amateur and that as long as you are willing to enjoy the bruises you can keep playing. Unlike its cousin American Football, all you need is 14 mates and you have a team. (and with the advent of rugby 7s, you and your 14 mates no longer need to find 15 guys to play against).

oh,
and to prove my point (or, one of them)
here is a player who both, took up the game late and then played on for love.
