15 Things to Know Before Dating a Rugby Player

If you’re contemplating dating a rugby player, either male of female you may want to make sure you’re ok with these facts before getting too involved…

1. Rugby takes priority…over everything

It’s not that you’re not important, it’s just that rugby is more important than anything

2. Be prepared for cuts and bruises in the strangest of places

We have no idea how they happened but be prepared for us to regularly look like the victims of domestic abuse

3. Nothing will cheer us up after a defeat

There is nothing that will wind us up more than losing a game and unfortunately there’s nothing you can do to change that

4. We’re going to want to eat….a lot

We are always going to be hungry, especially after a game when nothing will fill us up
