No matter what level of rugby you play at, these are the kinds of things you want everyone outside of the sport to know…
1.We’re not arrogant…just competitive
Just because we like to win, doesn’t mean we expect it.
2.It always hurts like hell
We may brush it off as ‘just a scratch’ but that big hit will be hurting like hell for the next week.
3.Rugby is important to us
It may be just a game to you, but to us it’s much more than that.
4.The social side is just as important as the playing side
Most of our closest friends can also normally be found down at the rugby club.
We may not show it, but winning or losing can really make or break our day.
6.We have nervous habits
Whether it be stupid pre-match rituals, or something else, we do get nervous before a game.
7.We hate individual tasks
Rugby is a team sport, where we have total faith in those around us doing their jobs.
8.We’re goal orientated
Once we commit to something, we see it through to the very end, no matter what.
