There's nothing quite as satisfying as throwing a few fists into the guy who just ran for a try

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

Heard that one about the testicle squashing before, but I reckon it's a bit of urban legend. I've heard it refered to in rugby, grid iron, AFL footy, Soccer etc etc etc. It was always one of those "friend of a friend of mine" stories.

They are totally different games. A rugby player could not play in the NFL or NCAA and vice versa. If it was true you would see a large amout of crossovers. (You can make just a little more playing in the NFL than in any rugby league.) I have played both and rugby is truely taxing and nonstop, but I have played middle backer for a University and BECAUSE I was in the platic armour, I did not care about how hard I hit, didn't even think about it as the 40 stitches in my chin and eye can atest too.

Actuly you can play NFL if you were a rugby player and good enough.

Ronan O' Gara the out half for Munster and Ireland was offered a 10 million contract to play with the Dolphins as a kicker.
