I am an enormous wimp when it comes to physical pain, which may be why I never really got into this particular sport. If I wanted to feel winded, I’d watch the beginning of Up again.
The main aim in rugby is to score a try by placing the ball behind the goal mark. While challenging for many, it seems to be pretty easy for some. Jeremy Clarkson, for example, seems to cross the line regularly.
