The Six Nations Championship in 2023 takes place from February 4th – March 18th. It's the 129th edition of the competition!
There’s an old saying by Oscar Wilde about rugby in contrast to football (a.k.a. footy / soccer): Rugby is a game for barbarians played by gentlemen. Football is a game for gentlemen played by barbarians. If you’re scratching your head thinking, “what pray tell does this even mean?” Don’t worry, you’re not alone. That’s why we’re here to help clarify the matter.
While rugby is a very physical game, there are rules of engagement and they serve to protect the health and wellbeing of every participant. Yes, just like any contest, competitiveness sparks animalistic desires to win at any cost; however, there is a general code of honor and conduct with rugby that is not seen in other less-physical sports.
At the end of matches, the competing teams get together for a lunch / dinner. So if you’re being a dick on the field, odds are you may end up eating crow (or a sandwich) next to the people you antagonized. If that doesn’t make you think twice, I don’t know what will. Imagine having to eat a meal with a person who is 2-3 times your size when not an hour prior you were trying to buckle their knees maliciously. They may want to squeeze your skull a wee-bit, like The Mountain vs Viper in Game of Thrones… Oops, delayed spoiler alert. You’ll just have to watch it all now, won’t you?
Furthermore, rugby does not have the likes of a Neymar rolling around for 20 minutes like a fish out of water when someone breathes on him. If you don’t know what we mean, here’s an example. Also, someone may or may not have a video with him rolling around different scenarios for 10 hours straight on YouTube. You’re welcome.
Imagine this bloke playing rugby, just imagine.
Side Note: We have to say we are big fans of soccer and all sports in general, but we have to make fun of the idiosyncrasies.
