Pretty self-explanatory really but here are my 10 biggest reasons that rugby is better than football (or soccer for our American friends)
Rugby fans are a great bunch, we all seem capable of getting along even in the biggest of games without the need for a hefty security presence.
The respect isn’t just confined to the fans however as rugby players at least have the decency to show each other respect in both defeat and victory.
World Rugby isn’t an organization that shelters orphans or cures affliction, but next to FIFA it looks like the Red Cross.
Since the dawning of the big money Premier League era, football has become a victim of its own success. Lots of clubs and even country’s have lost the identity which made them so special.
There isn’t much chance of seeing rugby players diving, feigning injury or attempting to con the referee. In fact, a rugby player is much more likely to try to manipulate the referee by pretending not to be hurt.
