    South African High School Rugby Player Suffers Nasty Broken Leg (Video)

    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 […]

    Naked Streaker Tackled by Chicken Mascot at New Zealand Rugby Match (Video)

    Streaking at any sporting event is a dicey venture, given the proclivity of security personnel to tackle, tase, and basically subdue interlopers through any means necessary. However, some sports are safer for streakers than others. For example, skiing seems to be pretty safe. This winter we told you about a guy who got nekkid and […]

    The Queensland Maroons have dominated their annual State of Origin rugby series against the New South Wales Blues, having won each series since 2006.  But 2013 is shaping up to be an entirely different story compared to what’s unraveled in recent years. The Blues got off to a great start by winning the first match […]

    This Rugby Hit by Lolo Lui Is as Hard as They Come (Video)

    I don’t know much about rugby. I know you score by running the ball into an end zone or kicking it through uprights. I know there are no forward passes, just like American gridiron football circa 1910. I know that rugby players are tough as nails. And I know there is something called rugby league, […]

  • Rugby Fans Brawl During Super League Match in South Africa (Video)

    Rugby Fans Brawl During Super League Match in South Africa (Video)

    There was a really nasty brawl at the Sharks-Kings game back on March 9. However, it wasn’t the Sharks-Kings game you’re thinking. The San Jose Sharks played the Blues that day, and the Los Angeles Kings played the Flames. No, the Sharks and Kings I’m talking about are South African rugby teams based in Durban […]

    Meet Carlin Isles, the Fastest Rugby Player in the World (Video)

    Apparently when you’re an extremely gifted athlete, you can pick up new sports pretty quickly. Take American sprinter Carlin Isles, for example. He didn’t make the cut for the 2012 U.S. Olympic Track Team, so he missed out on London. However, his personal best for the 100m is 10.13 seconds, which would have put him […]

    Rugby Player Ruptures Testicle During Match, Keeps Playing

    British rugby player Paul Wood would have given his right nut to get his team, the Warrington Wolves, a victory in the Super League Grand Final in Manchester this past Saturday. In fact, he did give his right nut. But, sadly, Warrington still lost to the Leeds Rhinos 26-18. You see, early in the second […]

    This Is One Vicious Rugby Hit (Video)

    Last Tuesday we told you about the South Sydney Rabbitohs’ epic last-minute comeback against the Sydney Roosters of Australia’s National Rugby League. This Tuesday, oddly enough, we have yet another story about the Rabbitohs. However, while it’s pretty awesome, it’s not what you would call “inspiring.” On Saturday night, the Rabbitohs faced off against the […]
