@JoexBro: The idea is to 'let the opposition know you`re there` as my old man used to say (an ex Bath and Gloucester player). If you use your shoulder, it is more effective than trying to grab a piece of shirt and then pulling the player on top of yourself (as this guy did).
I would argue that there is a an intention to hurt but not injure - you go in hard and your opposite number goes in hard - if you don`t, then you wont last long against decent opposition.
You then share a beer and compare battle-scars with your opposite number in the club-house afterwards.

JoexBro, there is no intention to injure or hurt someone in the tackle, although sometimes a big crunching tackle can show who is boss.

@som-tam: you have it totally wrong, I believe the idea in rugby is not too injure or hurt someone in the tackle. Also as far as american football goes, you dont go in with the shoulder, a good wr,rb, etc will just get away from you like that, wrapping them up with the arms is important

@Xprez - I don't watch a lot of NFL, but I don`t think the gap between professional rugby and NFL is as great as it was. There have been various talks over the years of rugby players going to NFL in fact. I would suspect though that no NFL player would consider the career move. The money in rugby is a lot less to start with and I would think that an NFL player late in his career wouldn`t welcome further physical battles.

You're basically looking at the average NFL player. Most RBs would love to play and exploit Rugby.
