    I was watching a game the other night on TV - lots of face bashing with elbows and knocking each other out. In American Football you just tackle - everyone gets hit... but in Rugby, it's basically smeer the queer - if you have the ball, prepare to get hammered. I have been invited to go play with some Aussies - but haven't... yet... but they want my size on the field...

    Soccer is a gentlemans game played by hooligans, and Rugby is a hooligans game played by gentlemen!.

    Warrior, if you've never played before, DON'T. The Aussies will seriously murder you, I'm serious man.

    I started back playing for my local team last season after 9 years of being out of it. I was so unfit you wouldn't believe. Now I'm back in the gym, my fitness levels are up, and my size is coming back, the next season is going to be a stormer! If I come up with any tips I'll be sure to post them!

Makes football look like a pussy sport.

    Coming from South Africa, have watched a game or two!! Here is a guideline or two to the various rugby playing nations:

    New Zealand : Will win the tri-nations this year
    Australia : Very good until South Sea Islanders are banned from playing
    for them
    South Africa : Ah I'm sure we will win something soon (not)
    Canada : Always win the fights
    Wales : Got clubbed by SA, so not much more to say

    Yep, rugby is a pretty rough game played by some big buggers who are pretty hard ! I tell you what though, I was watching some football on cable the other night... your American Football players are UNBELIEVEABLE athletes, even though I did not really understand the game altogether.

    BTW If you want to see how the game is played, watch the up and coming tri-nations series between NZ, Aus and South Africa.... will be a great tournament !!

    Peace !!

    I played football in HS, and never really got a chance to play Rugby til now (in college)…

    I have the utmost respect for the game, and anyone who plays it…

    rugby is truly one of the greatest sports created , union or league

    theres a diff between two

    league has a tackle count and the scrum in league is pointless and well theres more but so many cant tell all

    Ah, at last a comment from a man from a REAL rugby nation, hats off to the Kiwis who have always been awesome.............enjoy the tri-nations, but don't be surprised if the Springboks finally manage to give you guys some gas !! (by the way.... when is Carlos Spencer going to retire....but wait, I think he might have a South African Grandmother

    Peace !!

    Now this is an intelligent man LOL. Tell ya what i rate the boks up there B4 the aussies, i think aus has had its day and need the old timers to bugger off and let the newbies run with the ball. Did you see the pacific islanders play the aussies the other night, **** the kafers beat them black n blue it was awesome. I really didnt think this lot would understand the game but it seems like theres a following eh.

    Boks before the aussies? you been smokin too much my sheep rooting friend, I want to see NZ play Australia this year though, I think both teams are fairly evenly matched, but I think NZ are the better team this year in the tri nations, but we'll see. I liked watching the pacific islanders game, watch out they're playing NZ this week, hope your boys don't get hurt too badly.

    Sh*t man, those islanders look like they were genetically engineered as tackling machines, nothing like being hit by a guy that weighs 105 KG's & does the hundred in 10.3 sec !!

    We are also set to play them soon, so I feel sure that the local casualty room will do a roaring trade.....

    Enjoy the tri-nations, hopefully I will not have to come back to the board at the end of July to be ripped off about coming third (again)

    New Springbok coach seems to have made a huge difference to the confidence of the side, but only time will tell. We have some awesome loose forwards coming over to visit you, but the backline is still up to maggots!! Haven't had a world class flyhalf since Noah left the ark....

    At 195 I am guessing that you are probably a lot more mobile than your mates in the front row, which is great. In world rugby it is no longer sufficient to just be big, you need to move around the park as well !!

    I would suggest you try out as a flanker, but be prepared to run around the park like a madman, as you are expected to be at point of breakdown first.
    Probably a lot more fun than playing hooker anyway........

    Enjoy the game (the best), maybe even see a side from the US in the world cup soon??

    Peace !!

    Anyone see the bledisloe cup last night? we killed the aussies. Good punch up 15 mins into it, after that mortlock prick rucked a kiwi players back with the ball no where in site, then carlos and a few others had the aussie pinned and belted the shyt outta him. Next week i think we play the boks, should be a hard game.

    Phuck off!!! If it was "the game of men" like you say, then why are there 6 units of play where the whole game stops untill the tackled man plays the ball between his legs? with union its pretty much a running game with stops for pretty much only penalties and lineouts, oh and scrums. Speaking of scrums what is the point of haveing one in league? i mean how many times do you get a tight head scrum in league and the opposition gets the ball? id say 1 outta 100, so you might as well just give the team the ball instead of going through the formality of having a scrum.
