Rugby?

Any rugby players or fans on this forum? Just curious. I play for a Division 4 Men's League in New England and it felt really good to practice for the first time this year yesterday.

Anyway, just thought I'd see who around here even knows what rugby is or whether you play/have played before.

Re: Rugby?

Ahhhh the all blacks, beautiful playing ALL the time.

Any particular favorite Super Rugby team? Mine would be the Blues. Shame they aren't doing anything besides losing this season...

Re: Rugby?

Im based off the East coast in the U S of A ('Murica) so there isn't that big of a rugby fanbase over here, just american football, which is fine.

Rugby is like a religion down here, being an All Black is like being in the Beatles

Re: Rugby?

The all blacks recently played the US team in chicago a few months ago (naturally we got wrecked) and a few of my buddies went. They said they were secretly rooting for the all blacks the whole time. We all just like quality rugby. Nobody offloads like the all blacks do.

I think the hurricanes recently played the blues and beat 'em 28-14 or something similar. C'mon Blues get yo s*** together!

So much jealousy coming from my end. I just want to shake Dagg's hand and yell "muh fellow #15!!" haha, although I'm of course nowhere near his level.

You know, I've also played american football for a semi-pro team here and after playing both sports I realized that they really can't be compared. The way you hit someone with and without pads is completely different. One isn't harder than the other but I must say rugby hurts loads more. Though for me, it's impossible to say that one is better than the other, just that they are apples and oranges.

christ if that mountain was coming at me I might just "accidentally" get juked (jump out the effin way)

The fall season I scored 5 tries as a fullback so I'm happy with my performance so far.
