The best code?

Which do you think is better?

  1. League, it has more action, power and there's no time wasted with constant kicking to touch for set

  2. Union, it's more tactical and the ball is always being contested!

  3. Both! I like both for their respective strengths!

    I thought I'd add this poll in protest to Maddogs one [​IMG] . As personally I do like both codes and follow them with equal enthusiasm!
    It will be an unbalanced count, as this is the "rugby" forum, but still...

    There will never be a real "best" code. Only, which code is preferred by most. But really, does that matter? For me I prefer union but in no way does that make me think that in is the best code.

    My background is union and I do love it. However I like RL and his History. I like the passion of his supporters and I have very good discussions with them. I've never rejected them and I think that if I had lived at the time of the schism it is very likely that I would have been in the RL camp.

    I LOVE RUGBY UNION

    LOVE THE RL FOOTY SHOW
    LOVE AFL
     
  7. Union. I respect League, but I prefer Union as I think it involves a wider range of skills, and you can actually turn the ball over.

    Yarr, I agree.

    League's attraction's for me are:
    1) Big tackles.
    2) The odd bit of exciting running play.
    3) The tries scored from kicks.

    But overall, I like rugby union much much more.

    You can in league!
     
  10. Technically only after the opposition have had 6 chances of running it at you. The only other realistic way of getting a turnover is if they drop it. Otherwise the ball should be fairly safe.

    Thats the main difference... Union is more about the contest for the ball, whereas league is mostly about "what you can do WITH the ball".
