There are so many different sports out there that are worthy of my attention, and I just don’t have time to follow them all. So because I live in North America, where gridiron football is king, that’s the version I pay the most attention to. However, I’m pretty sure that, if I lived in one of the parts of the world where rugby is the predominant form of football, I would be a huge rugby fan. As far as I can tell, the only thing not to like about the sport is the lack of the forward pass, and I think the lack of pads and almost superhuman toughness of the players would more than make up for that.
Don’t believe it? Take a look at these GIFs of bone crushing rugby hits, tackles, and other displays of brute force. You won’t regret it.
