Pretty amazing article....made me want to run out and play rugby. I guess at 6'3" and 225lbs I could have been a contender, but didn't have the guts when I was younger and don't have the body now at 44! I'll stick to ice hockey -- after reading the article, it seems tame compared to rugby.

I do remember 20 years ago having an English employee in New York City who was about 23 years old and built like a short tank. Each Monday he would come in with some injury: broken collarbone, black eye, etc. This was a fancy investment bank so it was kind of like those scenes in Fight Club where Edward Norton comes in to work. That kind of scared me off to begin with.
