    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.

    Rugby Player “Beast” Catches Teammate By His Shorts (Video)

    His name is Tendai Mtawarira, but many rugby fans simply refer to him as “Beast.” That nickname is certainly no overstatement.  Beast made that quite clear during a recent Super Rugby match against the Stormers, as the Sharks’ prop lifted one of his teammates high over his head during a kickoff.  And just when it […]

    Pitch Invader Gets Jacked Up By A Rugby Player (Video)

    Most television networks choose not to show viewers footage of pitch invaders running onto the field of play because they feel that doing so would only encourage others to partake in similar activities.  While that may be true in certain instances, something tells me that anyone who saw Olly Barkley dunk a pitch invader during […]

    UltimateBall Is Like Rugby In An MMA Cage (Video)

    Mixed martial arts and rugby are two of the most physical sports I can think of, but what happens when you combine them both?  You get a free-for-all sport by the name of UltimateBall, which pits two teams of four against one another as they attempt to score on the opposing team’s net while avoiding […]

    Originally, I thought I’d bring you a list of the greatest upsets in Rugby World Cup history for today. But as the group stage of the 2011 tournament draws to a close, the fact that the opening round matches have yielded precisely zero upsets thus far really took the wind out of those sails. Maybe […]

    Picture Of The Day: Beyond Huge

    “Beyond Huge.” You think those were the words on the mind of this Canadian rugby player after he dove in for the try during Canada’s impressive 25-20 victory over Tonga at the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand?  Judging by the agonizing look on both of their faces, I’d say that it wouldn’t be much […]
