This was my first Rugby match that I attended. It is quite different from what I am use to…that being Canadian Football (and yes I mean the CFL, not soccer :-)). I find rugby a much faster game with no padding (ouch) and almost everything goes including, as in this photo, holding onto another player.
I must admit it is a sport that I do not fully understand, but nevertheless have the utmost respect for the athletes who seem to never tire in the blazing heat and keep getting up after being dragged, piled on and tackled.
