A to Z Challenge: W

April A to Z Challenge
Day 23: W
Growing up in America, Rugby was not a mainstream sport like football. However, when I started dating my current boyfriend who is a WRU Wales Rugby Union supporter, I have gained a whole new respect for the game of Rugby. Watching this past Six Nations Championship and Wales taking the victory, it was exciting to watch. The brutality is unmatched in other sports, even hockey (which could be considered the most violent sport) they wear protective gear. In rugby, there is not protective padding, other then the athletes muscles! When rugby players take a hit, you cringe knowing the impact and consequences. The amount of dedication and conditioning that has to be involved with a well trained rugby player must be intense. If you want to watch a real sport, I would suggest watching the Wales team. They are well trained and can execute plays much like an animal stalking it's prey. It doesn't hurt either that the whole time you are feasting on eye candy!!
