Is that the sport where a bunch of guys go off into a field and start groping each other until something squirts out? Here in the US that would be called a lewd act, but hey, I try not to Judge:)

Kind of hard to grope anything when you have body armour!

Not a bad game despite us losing:p but with only 6 points in it im not to disapointed.......... we just need to flow a bit better when moving the ball, have to find space and when kicking the ball make it count!

Now, I'm from Texas. I've seen rugby once and I had no clue what was going on. It's the most confusing sport I've ever seen. Also in football we wear pads because we hit a lot harder and were a lot bigger. Just sayin'.

I didn't see anything particularly stupid there. Some might be indicative of ignorance but that's a different matter.

No I'll stand by my words, when he states " I had no clue what was going on " then he follows that statement up with a comparison to another sport, well that is just stupid. I'll agree with you that ignorance comes into play also.

I think Queen Victoria said it best.

Morning Darren,

Having played both games and having lived in countries where these games are played I have an appreciation for both sports. The requirement for the heavier padding and protective gear in American type football (NFL) and Canadian type football (CFL) has been brought about by the use of helmets. The padding worn by rugby players protects against raking.

I believe that North American football could be greatly improved by adopting the rugby rule of where the ball is grounded on the field is where the play resumes from. The North American way is to return the ball to centre field (between the hash marks) which reduces the options and challenges.

Hopefully today's Super Bowl is a great game, they certainly have 2 teams with long and proud historys. Green Bay for me there.

Then later this year we have the Hong Kong 7's. Fiji for me there.

Regarding the 6 nations, England shall prevail.
