I Love Rugby -- who knew??

A friend of mine (who was also one of my mission companions) invited me to her rugby match this morning. She plays for BYU, and they played UVU this morning in Orem.

What a fascinating game! It's more interesting than football to me (though I still love football) because it doesn't stop as often, and it seems like there are fewer rules. There is no padding, no helmets, and you can pull people to the ground by their jerseys. The downside? One girl broke her nose today, and another was carried out on a stretcher with a potentially serious neck injury.


Still, I'm kind of looking forward to seeing another game.

One of my friends played for Weber. She broke her nose when a girl on the opposing team stomped on her face with her cleat.
