| Who said rugby is a game for only big macho brutes
of men who like nothing better to do than beat the
living daylights out of each other?
Yes it has variously been described as:
- An awesome game requiring teamwork, fitness and
copious amounts of hatred for your fellow humanity.
- A fast, skilled, team-oriented game combining the
tactical complexity and physical brutality of American
football (only without the padding).
- The only sport where 15 guys are sent out to beat
the shit out of the other 15 guys. Team with the least
These are some of the definitions of this "game
for real men" we found on the urbandictionary.com
But sometimes it has its gentler moments too, when
men get in touch with their feelings and display a
more tender side. Like in the picture above, which
we call 'Rugby Love'.
