When one thinks about the manliest sport of all time, there is none that comes close to the rugged and high-octane game of rugby. There is nothing more gladiatorial about a sport than watching two opposing teams of hunky players in their tight, thigh long shorts and shirts and almost wrestle with the opposing team players in an attempt to score points with the ball. In this contest of might and wits, both clever game strategy and strength are put to the ultimate test – rivalries are reignited and legends are made on the ground.
