American Football VS Rugby: Part Three

Israel ButsonCorrespondent IAugust 23, 2008

Since we started this series, we've heard from a number of NFL supporters that tackles in rugby can't hurt much, because they're designed to 'smother', rather than 'stop' the player with the ball.

Well, Part 3's clip has yet more examples of the apparent 'softness' of rugby (ha...), which we hope will show all you Americans that tackles in rugby hurt.

They really, really hurt.
