    Rugby Player Congratulates Opponent On Punch That Knocked Him Out (Video)

    We get it, rugby players. You’re big tough guys that don’t hold a grudge. Yeesh. English rugby star Tom Youngs is the latest guy to help elevate rugby players to “mythical warrior” status as he congratulated opposing player Salesi Ma’afu on a good shot when the Australian player clocked him in the face with a […]

    300-Lb College Rugby Prop Runs Way Too Fast (Video)

    Props in rugby are generally valued for their toughness and endurance, often sacrificing speedin the equation. But Daniel Tupou, 18 years old and weighing in at 300 pounds, is faster than most guys half his size.

    Goliath Finally Beats David in This Rugby Hit (Video)

    Sports narratives are dominated by the idea that anybody who puts the work in can beat anybody else.  It’s a crucial part of the thrill of competition, but it can also get a little dull, so sometimes it’s nice to see some big guy just clobber a little guy.

    Say what you want about the dirty play of Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh.

    Rugby Judge Makes Ridiculously Bad Call (Video)

    Even if you don’t know the first thing about rugby, you’ll still be able to appreciate this blow call by a touch judge, which would make an NFL referee look like the HAL 9000. It’s a simple case of a player being out of bounds and not being called as such, but it’s the sheer […]

    Rugbydump.com describes the annual rugby match between Grey College (Bloemfontein) and Grey High (Port Elizabeth) as “one of the oldest fixtures on the South Africa schools calendar, dating way back to 1929 when the two sides first met.”  Over the weekend, these two schools met once again, and the result was what may very well be […]

    31 Animated GIFs of Bone Crushing Rugby Hits

    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 […]
