  1. Truth is that rugby is one if the most rugged and physically punishing sports allowed by law. I had hoped that my comment would be taken sarcastically, clearly I was mistaken. However, I do appreciate that the one who called me out for being scared preferred to stay “Anonymous.” Good old fashioned Kenyon hypocrisy.
