Fast and Agile
 
I just got tired of "66 inch jump" being the first thing listed in this forum.

Wish I had more to say than that.

Here's some speed and agility:

and a fair bit of power too.

We got owned by Leicester on Saturday. The Samoan guy weighs 250+.

James,

How would you describe Rugby to 8 and 12 year old American kids? I've watched some games when I was in college and a bit on the television but I was unable to describe it to them at all.

I htink I said "It's like combining soccer and American football with no pads" or something to that effect.

And to prove we can play a little bit too, here is James Simpson-Daniel making the former England captain Lawrence Dallaglio look stupid:

Quality not great and Gloucester soak up a lot of pressure before the money shot.

10 seconds of that sort of athleticism can make 80 minutes of dour collisions between huge men in mud and rain seem worthwhile.

I think the only thing it has in common with soccer is that like all codes of football it comes from the same origins.

How do we describe your football to British kids?

I would say think NFL but you cannot pass the ball forwards. It can only be kicked or carried forward.

You'll enjoy this Robb. Mostly Rugby League, mostly illegal (they're shoulder charges not legitimate tackles).

I take offence to that. 80 minutes maximum.
