10 Things You Should NEVER Say To A Rugby Player

Here are 10 things you most definitely never ever say to a rugby player, no matter what level or position they play;

1. Isn’t it Just A Load Of Big Guys Running Into Each Other

Ever heard of Jason Robinson?

This is a tired old argument used to put down rugby players by people who have never actually taken the time to watch one of the greatest sports in the world.

2. Maybe You Should Come Off?

Not a chance!

Never, I repeat never tell a rugby player they should leave the field…unless it’s a head injury.

3. So, Do You Take Steroids?

What do you think? Idiot!

Yes, rugby players may be bigger than most people, but that doesn’t mean we’re all pumped full of steroids. We workout and train hard which naturally increases muscle mass.

4. Doesn’t It Hurt

What do you think genius?

Yes rugby players will act tough and laugh off huge hits but of course that 18 stone monster hitting you at full pace hurts.
