• New to Rugby. What are some of the club associations/leagues out there?

    Best answer: First off, rugby (either code) has rather strict head injury assessment protocols. For union, the issue of how to deal with scrums has been an ongoing issue for the last 20 years. But, we digress. In the US, MLR (Major League Rugby) is a domestic competition with clubs in the US and Canada. If you want to play... show more
    Best answer: First off, rugby (either code) has rather strict head injury assessment protocols. For union, the issue of how to deal with scrums has been an ongoing issue for the last 20 years. But, we digress. In the US, MLR (Major League Rugby) is a domestic competition with clubs in the US and Canada. If you want to play rugby, use your search engine of choice to find clubs nearby. Most, if not all openly welcome new players. All you really need is shorts, a pair of cleated shoes (soccer cleats are fine most of the time), and desire to play the game.

    Outside of North America, the Gallagher Premiership is the main domestic comp in England. The Top 14 is the same for clubs in France, with remaining countries playing in the Pro14. The best clubs play concurrently in the Heineken Champions Cup (think Champions League soccer, but rugby). All four comps play league matches culminating in Grand Finals for each one; European seasons run from September-late May/early June.

    In the Southern Hemisphere, Super Rugby is the main domestic competition featuring regional sides from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Argentina and Japan. They play weekly games from Feb-Jun featuring a Grand Final.

  • Why is Rugby Union considered an upper class sport?

    I’m very much working class and I played Rugby Union. Just picked up a rugby ball instead of a football, joined a local club and loved it. Still a huge rugby fan to this day and have never followed the EPL. My team was a mixture of working, middle and upper class guys which was great.

  • Should England have a new national anthem for Rugby?

    I personally don't like God Save the Queen at all as neither do a lot of people. I don't have a problem with the Royal Family but the anthem itself is awful. You look at rugby players singing it. They have no passion at all. Whilst when you see them singing Jerusalem a few times they belt it out. There is... show more
    I personally don't like God Save the Queen at all as neither do a lot of people. I don't have a problem with the Royal Family but the anthem itself is awful. You look at rugby players singing it. They have no passion at all. Whilst when you see them singing Jerusalem a few times they belt it out. There is such a huge difference. The choices have either been Land of Hope and Glory or Jerusalem. I like I Vow To Thee My Country and I would prefer it to the anthem of England. We were meant to have anew anthem years ago yet we're still stuck with GSTQ. You watch the audience aswell, they look like they have no interest in singing it. Do you think our anthem should be changed? And if so, which would you choose?
