Rugby - IN THE FACE

Not a very popular sport, and a tough one to shoot. It's especially tough to shoot when 75% of the teams are inexperienced (less than a year old) and resort to gang-tackle football tactics.

Still, the 7-on-7 14 minute games, as opposed to 15-on-15 80 minute standard matches, lent themselves to some serious action, and serious scores. Licking Valley defeated Lancaster 71-0 (In 14 minutes!!)

Oh, and I hear Rugby is coming to the Olympics in 2016...?
