Because it doesn’t stop at 80 minutes.

This is not just a game. This is leaving nothing on the pitch. But knowing it’s what happens off it that really counts. This is firm handshakes, fierce tackles, no hard feelings. This is belonging to something bigger than yourself. This is sacrifice rewarded. This is “great game you deserved it!” This is sportsmanship at all costs. This is the lessons that define you. Hard earned but never forgotten. This is holding back the tears but belting out the anthem. This is, after everything, the friendships.

This is Rugby.

This is the Game of our Lives.

Rugby is more than just a sport. It’s a belief, a way of being. That’s how much it means.
