    There is a difference between Rugby is a tough sport not for sissies and the other which you are depicting that rugby is for thugs (looking at the videos you have provided here). If it was more big rugby tackles and less fighting and cheep got punches then maybe your post would have more weight.

      I couldnt agree more with you, and in the fourth video guys are kicking each other! Only a sissie kicks someone

      In Video 4 the Blue players predictably won the fight after being kicked by the green players

      Nah Sprinkels, taking a dump behind a closed door is the most dangerous sport in SA

    Is there really no other "News" that they have to resort to this. I guess thats what happens to rugby when the Stormers are having an off season. They better up their game so that the rest of SA rugby doesn't go into the toilet.

      Omgeklits DeMaaifudĂ­ - 2014-04-08 10:57

      * . . . into the toilet as well.

      Ali Gee - 2014-04-08 11:00

      I cant argue with the truth. Stormers recent form has made it so hard for me to be a troll...

    What a missed opportunity. Don't show the some of the legitimate hard hits that take place each Weekend in Superrugby, instead show the rubbish. There is only one legitimate hard legal hit in a video and that is of Hendry Tuilagi. The rest is just fighting, high hits, clotheslines and tip tackles. Those things are not what makes rugby such a hard game, but rather absolute worst side of the amazing game of rugby. Terrible article

      Hahahaha, thanks for the comedy Gluteus Maximus... Such an appropriate name for a BIG ASS!

    Ever heard of, ice Hocky and boxing?

      Paul Holzman - 2014-04-08 14:00

      no neck, knee, back injuries in ice hockey, its not rough at all

    MMA is much more violent

    a) rugby players wear padding. b) MMA is more violent c) many sports demand incredible toughness, but in different ways. rugby is awesome enough without trying to sensationalise it with this type of hype and thuggery.

    No pads? Lol, is this a joke. Gum Guards, Scrum Caps and Shoulder pads. Comon bro. Soccer is the most dangerous sport, breaking a leg in 2 pieces never occurs in Rugby. Concusion, skull crack, fractured bones, muscle tearing are all sports imjuries, so what are you talking about.
