      Rugby is a sport that could be played by every kind of people: big, smal, fast, strong, women, men. Thats make the sport a very nice sport. You see in a game diverent kinds of players. WK rugby 2007 has been seen by 4,2 miljard people. So you can say that rugby is a sport that would be watched by many people all over the world. I think its good for countries like South-Africa, Fiji, etc. that rugby is a olympic sport. So that also coutries like that has a change for a olympic medal.

      There's no sport that better exemplifies the Olympic ideals of swifter, higher, stronger. From the fastest backs escaping tackles to the highest thrown balls in line-outs to the strength in the scrums, this sport is what it's all about.

      Because rugby (XVs) used to be in the Olympics and its appeal since then has only grown. Its spirit, and that of its players and fans alike, puts many other sports to shame and for that reason alone it best defines Olympic values. Moreover, until it is back in the Olympics and a new nation comes away with the gold I will be able to continue to bore you all with: USA! USA! Reigning rugby Olympic champions!
