Watch a state of origin game: Queensland vs New South Wales. It is legalised thuggery, it is poetry in motion and it's as hard as rugby in the 70's & 80's. Let's put it way Johan Le Roux & Richard Loe would love it. Agreed. Speaking from experience as a tight five (rugby) and front row (league) Fair point but you explained exactly why you can't provide a fair comment. Also, AFL players on average 7kms during a slow game. You also haven't accounted for rugby stoppages for lineouts, goalkicks, scrums, scrum resets, more scrum resets, dropkick restarts etc... It would be second nature, as the majority of games touch/tag all developed from league. The majority of backline moves & defensive organisations are underpinned by league offensive & defensive structures. Also, could be the competition you're in. However, rugby is CHESS and league is CHECKERS. Both sports are amazing. Don't change the points for rugby it's fine. And not disagreeing with South Africa's try scoring ability during the World Cup, just disappointed with their inability to create try scoring opportunities in the RWC. If the RWC is the showcase of this sport, why can't the teams provide a showcase match? Or at least attempt too.
