It used to be said that rugby was a game for hooligans played by gentlemen and football a game for gentlemen played by hooligans.

No longer true?

I caught this quote on the rugby show last night:

'I love rugby; you can hurt people without breaking the rules.'

Had a friend who played sport in the 1950's. He stopped playing football and started playing rugby - because football was to violent!

you need to have a brain to actually hurt someone and still stay in the bounds of legality - unlike football!
