Title: Rugby Hits/Tackles/Speed
Post by: Mutumbo000 on August 12, 2014, 09:27:33 am
There's a lot of sports on this website but there isn't no Rugby so I'll use this thread to post up some highlight vids of what makes the game what it is.

damn @ that Dylan guy... he's a tank on offense.. and it's surprising how sometimes he stops people dead in their tracks using "only his arm".. i imagine you have to be freak strong to pull something like that off.

question: on the napa vid he seems to be wearing a bunch of different numbers. is it normal in rugby to change your number frequently? in most pro sports here it's unusual for stars to change number even when they switch teams, to the point where it's notable when it happens.

Yep. In rugby your number is the position you play. Napa plays in the back row so there are a couple of different numbers. He also comes off the interchange bench so if you're on the bench you wear a higher number.

He's one of the fastest in the NRL.

Off-field issues with alcohol have held him back from becoming a star.
