Aye. No quite my idea of “the beautiful game”......
Now Mo’s goal vs Spuds........that is a thing of beauty ❤️
Only one beautiful game as you say. Pele, Maradona, Cruyff, Zidane, Pele, Messi. And then there are the coaches - Rinus Michels, Arrigo Saachi, JURGEN KLOPP! Rugby's too one dimensional to be revolutionised in the way some of those men did to football.
That said rugby has thrown up some pretty great sporting moments in past - Japan beating South Africa a couple of years back was pretty great. And the 6 Nations is uber competitive and makes for a great spectacle. And the stadiums are GREAT! I would say the fans are great...but then I remember that f**king Swing Low chant by England fans! And f**k those fans who call football 'wendyball' and sneer at a Luis Suarez bite and all the 'scummery' it shows in football while lapping up a game where you can't get by one week where you hear of an incident of eye gouging or kneeing someone in the face. But most are privately educated gentlemen so what's seen as thuggery at a lower level is seen as passion at a higher level. A bit like when drug taking is abuse amongst the working classes but 'experimentation' amongst the higher classes. Oh and if there is one thing worse than a referee in football, it's a referee in rugby who regardless of the match, will be some dwarf with an extreme case of small man's syndrome. What a little sh*t he is!!
So yeah, I'm a bit torn on rugby to be honest.
