We've got something slightly different for you today on Rugbydump. As lovers of all sports, we've teamed up with the talented J-Fro to bring you this awesome video, simply entitled, Rugby vs Gridiron.
While the name might be misleading for some, this is by no means a comparison between the codes. It is simply a brilliant showcase of why it's possible for some to be fans of more than one sport with odd shaped balls, as many people are.
The aim is to show the best parts of Rugby Union, Rugby League, and American Football. Being a fan of all three, J-Fro's objective was not to show one sport as being superior to any other, but simply show the appreciation and enjoyment that can be found in all of them.
Volume 1 mainly highlights the running game in the three codes, with some big hits thrown in for good measure.
To some, NFL on Rugbydump may be blasphemy, but we see it differently as to us, the result of this creation is one of the most well put together videos out there, with a full array of big hits and incredible skill from the three sports that after all, have a fair bit in common.
We're interested to hear your thoughts, as while we're not huge NFL fans ourselves, we can certainly recognise a brilliant sports video when we see it. Hopefully it will be appreciated for it's entertainment value, because after all, that's what it was made it for.
Enjoy, and if you're a cross code fan yourself and loved the vid, by all means let us know.
