I just recently moved from London, England to the United States. Since I have lived in the states, I have shared with many the fact that I am actually quite fond of rugby. I used to play when I was much younger and more able, but since I have just taken more of an interest in simply watching the game live or on the television, either way I enjoy it. It is funny to me the lack of knowledge that Americans have when it comes to my most loved sport. I know that they have their American football here, and that is all well and good. It would just be nice if I did not have to explain the rules and ideas to about every person that I get on the subject with.
I have actually received many an email about hte possibility that I could explain all of the rules on this very site so that the sport can be easier understood especially for those more familiar with the game of American football. Well, I have something better than just writing the rules for you all. I found a very good video that is a sort of introduction to the sport rugby. Hopefully it will shed some light to those American football watchers who are looking to get into rugby.
