WATCH: Rugby match turns in 30-man brawl

The knock on baseball brawls is that, more often than not, they end up being nothing more than a bunch of guys in pajama pants, standing around and lightly shoving each other. You won’t hear any such complaints about this rugby fight. During a match between two Georgian clubs (the country, not the state), a wild melee broke out after one player (No. 23 in yellow) gave an opposing...

British rugby stars take on bizarre new look for zoo promotion

That wasn't a ferocious pack of wild animals on a rugby field in south England on Monday. It was just a few members of the Exeter Chiefs rugby team channeling their inner beast with a little help from a make-up crew. The sight of a zebra, cheetah, mandrill and gazelle scrumming for the ball was nothing less than bizarre, but it was all in a days work for four players from...

Rugby player delivers spectacularly vicious hit

Here’s a video clip from the Northampton – Bedford friendly rugby match in England last weekend. That freight train of pain comes via the 6’5″, 260-pound Courtney Lawes of Northampton. The poor guy on the receiving end was 6’1″, 191-pound Mike Le Bourgeois of Bedford. Looks like Le Bourgeois might be sipping his meals through straws for the next couple weeks. Absolutely...

A streaker stole the show at a pre-season rugby match in New Zealand over the weekend between the Vodafone Warriors and the NRMA Insurance Broncos. The speedy streaker took off and had a decent run going until Warriors strength and conditioning coach (and former player) Ruben Wiki tackled him from behind. How soon after making the tackle did Ruben Wiki regret his decision? Was it...

Rugby player called 'Beast' lives up to name

Rugby players are hulking men who are some of the toughest S.O.B.s on the planet because the game itself is a rough and tumble affair with players wearing not a stitch of protective clothing. Plus it has guys like Tendai “Beast” Mtawarira, a Zimbabwean-born rugby union player for the Sharks of the Super Rugby league playing in it, and as you’re about to see, Mtawarira lives...
