At least we got ours back on the world cup

We really need a new coach for the wallabies, because everytime we lose he has an excuse.

Ah its good to see scotland playing rugby, even if we lose it doesnt matter. We're too drunk to care anyhow, tradition always play a match with hang over.
i agree that england auzzie match should have gone to the auzzie's.

the worst injury ive heard of is a rugby one involving a testicle

Some guy got tackled and dislocated his hip (I heard thats one of the most painful dislocations) so the physio clicked it back and and the man started screaming.....the physio took a look and saw that his testicle had fallen into the gap during the dislocation...and it was now crushed between his leg and hip...he eventually passed out from the pain...but not before rippeing 3 vocal chords from the screaming

Its a true story just cant remeber the names etc (saw it on telly)

Rugby the game is tougher, but I think American football has bigger and tougher guys.

As mentioned before, Rugby is a more flowing game. The current South african team is plagued by political crap and is not as good as it should be. Their ball handling sucks.
american Football is a tough game, make no mistake. I tried to get into it while in highschool, but failed the physical - too many "problems" with knees, back, hearing, too many joint problems. The doc just asked "What the hell have you been up to the past 16 years?" - reply? Rugby!
I can say that Rugby ruins every Winter for me!
I played support (Not sure about the English name for this position - the Afrikaans name is Stut). Basically in the scrum everytime. A lot of dirty stuff going on in there. I played League for a short while after school but got banned from the local club in SA.
All in All, both are tough games, but AFL has evolved a bit and organizers realized that the helmets and pads are needed to prevent serious casualties.
