Back in the 70's I was stationed at Pearl Harbor, HI and two Australian tin cans came in. They put together a rag tag drunkin Rugby team and played the Uof Hawaii rugby team. I watched in awe as these drunkin sailors SPANKED the U of H team, which was organized and coached. Not sure I understand the rules, but definately a ruff game played without pads. That being said, the contact is not as violent as our "American" football since our guys are wearing protective gear. If not, someone would die every game.
