    Yeah, rugby players pretty much make football players look like fags.

    Argument against football helmets is that guys wouldn't be leading with their heads, but I saw plenty of hits in there that looked like head first shots. Wonder what the incidence rates of CTE amongst pro rugby players is.

    Lingerie and nude rugby is quite popular over here.

    Spinal injuries and brain injury stats arent bad, but they aint good either. Its very rough, but a hell of a lot of fun.

    Rules to note:

    You cant pass forward, only behind or parallel.

    Penalties are either the choice of a kick at goal or a run at the try(touchdown) line.

    Drop kicks are worth 2 points, try 5, penalty 2.

    A try is followed by a kick at goal, the kick is taken parallel to where the try was scored.

    A scrum is basically a controlled maul, weight and pressure are paramount, advantage can be the team whose halfback puts the ball into the scrum..they can put some spin on the ball.

    Assume you mean lineouts where the ball is thrown in from the sidelines by the hooker (insert hoar joke here).

    Its a strategy to get height and retrieve the ball. Most members of this lineout are around/over 6'4ish.
