    Rugby football

    How many of you have played or currently play rugby, and which position?

    I played wing forward/flanker and a sometimes prop.

    Striking and grappling skills are very useful in this sport--agree or disagree? I found I had to use both but, I guess it depends on how you play and which position.

    Lock, and hopefully flank one day. You were a winger and a prop? That can't be true, it would destabalize the universe!!

    Striking doesn't come into to play (usually :)), but grappling is great. Helps you stay on your feet better, not to mention tackling. Breakfalls and rolls help a lot too. I always roll straight to my feet.

    Go England!

    my college team had three sides. I'd play prop on the C side and flank on the B side.
    Yeh, striking only came into play, ahem, if i thought it was deserved and the ref. wasn't watching.
    As flank, I had to look out for my prop. If the other prop was playing dirty, I'd give ;em a good pop on the ear or in the ribs.

    There was a lot of gorundwork at times, as I recall. I going out for this social side this coming spring season.

    I played mostly wing in the back field and flank as a forward. Also spent a fair bit of time as the hooker.

    Uhm, Rugby is about as close as you can get to true unarmed battlefield style combat with a keg at the aftermath.
