And as for the whole rugby/football argument, I`ve played both and both are tough. The argument over which is tougher is nothing more posturing and masked xenophobia. By the way check out Aussie Rules and Gaelic Football. It`s frickin` madness!!
finally, for the guy that said the only sport thats comparable to football is hockey. uve obviously never wrestled. ive played all 3 sports, eventually giving up hockey so i can wrestle. wrestling is the most physically demanding sport out there. we wrestlers hardly eat anything, work out, hardly eat again, and then work out so more. not easy my bud
Let`s just put it this way, if a rugby player got hit hard by an american player, it`d probably hurt helluva lot more than if he/she were hit by another rugby player (even if the american had no padding)On the other hand, American players probably couldn`t last half of a rugby game, running up and down the field non-stop:D
And they wear short shorts :D
definatley not pussies"I will admit rugby is a tough-as-nails sportBut I have to say that I think the hits in American Football are have helluva lot harder hits, hence the need for paddingI mean I watch Football regularly, so to not sound TOO biased I watched a few "best hits" things for Rugby.. and I have to say I`m disappointed. With those hits the entire crowed went "AWWWWW" or "OOOOH THATS GOTTA HURT!!", but if it were American Football they would just be like "Damn, there goes a down!" because, from what I`ve seen, a "hard" hit in rugby is just about as hard as american players tackle on a regular basis.When you compare rugby "best hits" to af &
I`ve said it before, I`ll say it again. Rugby is for pussies.""
Actually, Rugby in australia is pretty much the same thing as what we just watched... except they have no padding. A mouthguard and some guys have light helmets if they have prior neck/head injuries from previous games.

he deserves a scholarship for that
I think it was towards the end of the game. They needed it.

I`ve said it before, I`ll say it again. Rugby is for pussies.
The only other sport you can make a case for is hockey. No other sport is even close to as tough as those two.
It was a good play but that alone isn`t enough for a scholarship. It was as much luck as anything else. If he hadn`t hit it just right, if the other player hadn`t been right there, if any of the defense had gotten a hand on it, it would have just been a good try.
With that...great effort
that is a pretty excellent catch though.
"Note also that a runner may carry the ball in such a manner that it is over the sideline, so long as the ball or runner does not touch anything out of bounds."
seems that it was a legal play since the player must touch out of bounds.
I might look more into that now.
and not so much give the WR a scholarship, but get a new QB...
Pretty, as in their words, magnificent
