You can't make a real comparison between the two. American football is a game of VIOLENT collision, unlike rugby. Your right, rugby players DO love to
paw and claw at each other, but if there is a REAL , non-flinching collision between ruggers, it's generally because they weren't watching where they
were going, an accident. Rugby players just don't launch their bodies like missiles, in order to knock the pole pizz out of the opponent. You know
what a "snot bubbler" is? Ask anyone whose played organized American Football. Besides, it's a MUCH more interesting game. kinda like "full contact
chess". You got yer stradtegy, you got yer violence, you got yer slutty pro cheerleaders, WHAT ELSE IS THERE?
