So, American football is in the United Kingdom. Now that they’ve got our players, they want to convert them over to rugby.
Nice try, but I doubt they’d put down all their NFL padding and helmets and pick up a rugby ball.
But this is an interesting cultural exchange. And we get to see how little American football players know about rugby. And see some of the differences.
Though I grew up on Rugby Road in Brooklyn, I also don’t know much about rugby. But should I?
As many injuries as football players are subject to with all that padding, and here’s a game just as fierce but with no padding. Are you kidding me?
I doubt I could even watch a game of rugby without feeling really worried, much less play a game.
