Why I Love Rugby

We come from different backgrounds, from different parts of the world. We're of different age groups and have different beliefs. We're all essentially very different. But one thing we do have in common, is that we all love rugby.

That’s why you’re sitting where you are right now. That’s why thousands, from far reaches of the globe, are doing exactly the same thing. We can’t get enough of it. It’s in our blood. Every moment of this game is special to us. Every tackle, every try, every run, every step – it’s what makes rugby what it is - the most enjoyable sport in the world.

This awesome video, made by one of our regulars, is a brilliant summary of all things special in rugby. The power, the skill, the showmanship – it’s all in there, and it makes for a really well made compilation video that will no doubt touch you in some small way.

There will be a lot of clips in here that you may have already seen, but with the way it's packaged, they’re worth seeing again. There’s even one or two League clips thrown in, as, running with ball in hand and stepping your man is good to watch in either code of the game.

All in all, we hope you enjoy this video, and if you, like us, think it’s a great format for another Rugbydump series, then let us know and we’ll consider putting a number two together. Who knows where it can go from there.


My Sacrifice by Creed
Time: 04:59
Note: Thanks to Chris for the great vid

  • Wow.....

    I've been a fan of RD for a long time and I have to say that this is easily one of the best video I've ever seen on the dump.

    Anyone that's worked with video editing knows how much time goes in to making a 3 or 4 minute vid like this.

    The quality of hits and tries in this video is staggering.



    By Blogger Blake, at June 19, 2008 11:55 pm  

  • Superb vid. Love every second of it.

    Those talking about Shane Williams - it's about rugby, not individuals, so even bringing that up and bitching about it is pretty pathetic really.
    Appreciate a good vid about RUGBY. There will be other times to praise individuals.

    This, is quality. Well done guys.. well done Rancid. ;)

  • I was at a tourney recently that featured (sadly) an awful lot of pompous, posturing blowhards. You know, good rugby players but the kind that blow it by lots of flexing, posing, and talking about what great rugby players they are. It made me question why I love rugby. This video answered the question!

    Awesome vid. :)

    Well it wasn't intentional. I think i made the video before this seasons Super 14 started so was short on domestic Southern hemisphere material.

    That Joe Rockococko run and subsequent try at 2:14 is fantastic, was it king Carlos with the great little pass at then end of it?
    and to whoever said it, must of been quite something for joe to burn shane when he'd already crossed the try line before williams had even got across.

    Actually, as the creator of the video, he hadn't crossed the try line, far from it.

    He beat Shane with his own game, the step!

    I have nothing against Williams, and in the actual video comments on Youtube when asked why i didn't include his Six Nations material, i explain why(fear of Youtube account being expelled from the site)

    The truth is he was burned. Simple. It happens to the best of us.

  • This video didnt remind me how much I love rugby as such, more like how lucky I am to be able to play it. I know i'm only playing at schools and under-age level, but all my time and energy goes into training for it. It really is my life. And I feel privileged to be part of the teams I play for. This video reminded me of what an honor it is to be part of the greatest team sport in the world.
