On numerous childhood UK trips and family visits I was encouraged, ...er, 
goaded into playing rugby with locals. It is a toughening experience, and I 
played the game back in the US at college. I have played in all of the 
forward positions, so I have a pretty good understanding of the game.

These days in the US it has become a popular alternative to Gridiron football 
at many colleges, and is played by both mens, and womens teams.
