INFOGRAPHIC: Common Rugby Union Injuries

Interesting. My personal safety mantra has always been "stay away from the front five", not that I'm built for any of those positions anyway.

According to this, the position I tend to play most of my rugby - centre - attracted the highest number of injuries in this study. Oh dear....

I think if my team were in that situation it would be more a case of trying to give try-scoring passes then running the opposite direction, for jug avoidance.

"at least try to practice your set pieces or attack moves or something?"

And demonstrate those moves to your local rivals, who are literally standing around watching your every move?

Nice one. Thanks for coming on here to clear things up.

I particularly like this second comment, where you show sympathy for this coach. Clearly he's acted like a total bellend, but it sounds like maybe this was a one-off miscalculation / error of judgement. Hopefully they can chalk it up to experience and move on.

Hope you get a better game next time your teams meet!

@Choumai

Couple of other questions - see Reality a bit further down the page...

Why was the ref late - stuck in traffic, unavoidably delayed or his own fault?

Were both teams told before the scheduled kickoff time that the ref was delayed? Were the home team aware but "forget" to pass on the information to the visitors?

Just wondering if there are mitigating circumstances....

It's a valid point and you do have to wonder about the whys and wherefores of this situation.

Why was the ref late - stuck in traffic or is he a useless twat?

I think we need someone from one or both clubs to come on here and clarify the situation. There is a "Choumai" somewhere above claiming to have played in this match - maybe he can help...

*Ahem* That would make a 136 points margin...

Will be business-as-usual when he's allowed back into action.

I've no doubt he'll soon be smashing it hard up the guts again in no time.....
