The Lynx Rules to Rugby Union

Every now and then we come across a viral video that is an absolute must to be shared here on the RD. At other times, we find one with half naked girls in it. That's the case today, and anything that's written after this becomes irrelevant.

The goal is to keep your attention over the next few paragraphs, so here goes. Of course, the chances are that isn't going to happen and your hand is no doubt getting twitchy already. By now you're wondering if all this build up is really worth it. I can tell you now, you're wasting your time reading. 

But, if you've made it this far and want a bit of background info, here it is. This campaign comes from Lynx Australia, and explains the rules of rugby to those of us who either don't know them, or are in desperate need of a recap. I can tell you that around the third viewing, it all starts to sink in.

The interesting bit about this, other than the scantily clad ladies tackling each other, is that there are two versions of the video. Why, you say? Well, simply because even when it comes to gratuitous use of sex to sell, there's competition between Australia and New Zealand, so there are two different endings. We've gone with the Kiwi version.

This wasn't going to get posted as it's a little tacky and has already done the rounds via social media. With a majority male audience though, and some new rugby fans who possibly still need to learn the laws, we've buckled. Enjoy, share with your friends, and feel free to post your thoughts.

I don't know about you guys, but those girls are way too skinny for me to consider them sexy.

Exactly right, if not for their breasts you couldn't be blamed for thinking they hadn't hit puberty.

Typical eurocentic crap. Malnourished girls with only breasts and no hips

thanks a lot RD... This was the worst timing ever. Just when I suddently got my girlfriend interested in rugby, I come here to show her a thing or two and instead of having my girlfriend watching rugby all I got was a kick in the testies

I think this is degrading to women.

It also has some bad points. They don't pack down in the scrum properly.

don't really see why would they have to actually pack down correctly (this from a 2nd row). they should go train in the mud, though. mud wrestling... hmmmmmmmmm...

Add some jell-o or mud and it's on... haha great stuff, if women are going to feature in sexist ads, then what better excuse than a tough contact sport to showcase the "talents" of this girls? Each had two good reasons to love the game!

This video is a bigger buzz kill than Buzz Killington. Why do the media persist in trying to push such childish looking women on us, when science has proven beyond doubt that a small waist and BIG CURVY BUM is objectively what men are attracted to? These girls look they're 12 with their stick insect legs. Flat as a burnt pancake.

I have to wonder about men who like their women to look like children from the breasts down.

Totally agree mate. Although, having said that, I wouldn't kick any of them out of bed.

Why did the black team win, during the video I was so happy and thinking, wow, the first time in my life two teams are the winners...

Oh yes, sex definately sells, just as in mud wrestling and beach volleyball. And it wouldn't surprise me that these ladies are beach volleyballers, or some other ballers... And I'm going for the Ozzies - always been partial for a blonde, but more bangs per pound with brunettes though, I have found.

Hey, just wondering.

Who are those lynx rugby ad models? Especially the blond one in the picture, beside the black shirted one crossing her arms.

Can you read the comment above, the one I made before I verified? If you can't, let me know.

Appreciate the concern.
