Soldier Field packed! Don't know if it's true, but they said rugby is the fastest growing sport in the US.

Quickly curb stomping USA.

I'm noticing they don't celebrate advancing the ball and goals, though.

No they don't. The match I saw was against a team from Sydney and it was dominating. Those cats are all business. They are like the raiders of Australia.

Us Aussies have nothing on the All Blacks.

Sheer religion in New Zealand. They eat, live and breed the game.

That happens after the game... :lol:

If you haven't been to a drink up, then you really haven't seen the finest part of the world's finest game.

Played rugby for 8 years... 5 of them I went to Maggotfest in Missoula. 64 mens teams, 32 womens... 1 Epic fucking drink up on Saturday night.

There used be a house at my college known as the Rugby House. They had keg parties every Thursday. Used to go all the time as an underage freshman and get drunk paying 2 dollars for a cup. Disgusting place that should have been condemned. They had two or three dogs. The house was full of dogshit and smelled something awful. A unique group of people.

So the lack of celebration is what makes the sport good? I can't believe how obsessed people are about celebrations?

It is like continuous play right? I never played it, but as soon as you're tackeld, you just snap it to the next guy and they just keep playing, something like that right?

Too be honest, I don't really understand it? Do you only lose possession by fumbling? No forward passing, right? And a TD is worth what? and it seems like they kick FGs and XPs too?

And is "sevens" different from Rugby?

I've tried to watch it, just haven't been able to get into it.
