      It is a game which lives up to Olympic ideals of sportsmanship and endevour. And with the amount of success the game is having bringing the sport and its culture to regions that gain huge social and educational benefit from it (e.g. the recent schools cup in Saudi Arabia), I think rugby delivers a lot more punch than the likes of golf (individuals too used to representing themselves, not their nations)
