The have won 325 games since records began in 07/09 /1928
They often make darting runs.
Went to school in North wales so was lucky enough to be able to go to the Barbarians v New Zealand match in Cardiff in 1972.Unbelievable display of running rugby. Match still sticks in my mind after all those years, must have been good. Remarkable tries scored by both sides. The other best games of rugby I can remember are any of the ones in which Wales beat England! Unfortunately not as many as I would have liked!
Have to agree with Barbar answer.
Forwards more that half backs and backs find it essential to use some form of outer ear protection. This is because the high volumes of collisions that hit the out ear and the rubbing against fabric causes a condition nicknamed "Colly flower ear". This is the tissue in the ear becoming damaged continually and the soft tissue being replaced by scar tissue.
If you look at Tight head props, Hookers 2nd rows and number 8 players they more than most have both ears suffering damage as both sides and in contact in scums. Loosehead, open and blind side flankers have one ear more damaged than the other.
Its a subtle difference but it does become noticeable - Not all players suffer ear damage but like any other sport its comes with the territory
a centre, usually runs a lot but is more powerful than a winger
the best star rugby player in rugby 08 is Brian O'Driscoll Reason being is that he has the ability to break through CPU Tackles (not the tackles performed by players - pressing x on ps2 or s on PC )
also i noticed when you hold the ball with Brian O'Driscoll sometimes the CPU players do not bind him even though they are a meter or less close to him. but if any other player they would be caught or dived 3-5 meters away, and also he is fast, that's the combination this star player has, once he breaks through a tackle he's gone like the wind, the only way to close this fella is to make sure that his opposite number and the fullback is a star player like Ma'a Nonu(All Blacks), Latham (Australia), Montgomery (South Africa)
But in kicking it would be Dan or Johnny !!!
The term in Rugby is Fly Half. It is also called Half Back.
In the union code this player is number 10 in league its number 6 and is a link between the scum half (their half back partner) and the backs (wings and centres) - Their role is normally to make play judgements as to whether the ball is passed across the backs or is kicked for position. This person normally will take kick off, restart games from a kick off, take penalty kicks and conversion kicks
rugby league was born in England in 1895 - it was at that point that it established itself as a separate entity from the RFU (and therefore the game of rugby union).
It called itself the "Northern Union" (later called English RL).
the rule of nrl are:
these are just the basic rule but there many more
Its very difficult to explain a rugby pitch layout in a textual format in accordance with IRB regulations. However, I have attached a web address here whcih will show a picture of the ground layout and hopefully it will explain the features for you. It can be printed from this area as well
just add the 3 w's before guide
Rugby is a sport played by over 4.5 million people in 18,000 registered clubs and leagues world-wide.
Cleats are normally plastic and moulded to the boot sole there are normally 6 to 8 depending on the make of the boot. The normal rugby boot will have aluminium studs which screw in for replacement and these boots carry 6 to 10 studs
Upper body mainly. Deltiods. If passing off right arm to the left your right arm would contract using the anterior deltiod, the left arm would contract using the posterior deltiod. Other muscles used would be the wrist flexors, pronator teres, biceps and triceps. Possibly trapizius. Pectorals.
Jonny Wilkinson comes from Frimley, Surrey.
A lot of players don't wear pads in their pants, because they believe it will slow them down; whether it be speed, agility, or simply, reaction time. This is why so many players object to the NFL's new rule in the 2013 season, stating that it will become mandatory for players to wear thigh and knee pads. Personally, I agree with the players. In college, I wore Yeh smallest(youth) pads I could find, and during my stint in arena and semi-pro, I NEVER wore them... So it kind of makes sense to me.
Ther are no specific records of a time trial for him.
No but there is the millennium trophy, a trophy awarded to the winner of Ireland and England during the 6 nations.
They are a BANNED substance in both codes of the game. Those tested and found to be users are banned for an infernate time span. Sadly it does go on just ike in other sports. The main point is to reject their use and make those responsible for their supply face criminal charges.
