About This Quiz

To those who are unfamiliar with the game, rugby may look like a display of scarcely-organised violence in which it seems to be acceptable to beat people up as long as you don't throw the ball forwards. To those in the know, however, rugby is truly a gentleman's game, which works beautifully because all participants honour the rules and respect one another. Indeed, it is one of the noblest expressions of the human urge to compete and even show off a little, but without insulting or hurting anyone (beyond the occasional inevitable bruise from a scrum).

That's why rugby players are so often such great role models. They're (mostly) men who have chosen discipline, teamwork, and hard graft, so that their strength can be directed to something positive and productive, instead of toward merely pushing around those smaller than them. Still, they don't all go about this the exact same way. Some are one-trick ponies specialising in a particular skill. Some lean more on natural talent, while others had to work extra hard to make up the gap. Some are leaders, while others are good footsoldiers.
