Default Re: Football v American Football

Yeh I would have to agree that American football is in no way more brutal than Rugby Union. I have played rugby in scotland (no not the main team) for a few years now and in various positions mostly forward. The forwards take ALOT of hits to the chest and back. You have to be really careful in fully contested scrum because basically if u mess up in there you have a good chance of snapping your back in two. Also in rugby there is alot less standing around than american football especially if ur a forward. When thers a turnover its a quick line out and your away again. lol so out of the three the highest risk of severe injury or death is rugby. I wonder why i play it sometimes... ach wel its amazing anyway.
