Thus should be apart of the olympics and jus like other sports of the olympics it has taught humanity discipline, courage and the will to strive.

      Rugby reinforces the ideals of Olympism, thanks to Rugby’s long-standing ethos of fair play and friendship. Rugby would reach a new and young audience, including Rugby’s millions players in 116 countries and the tens of millions of fans worldwide. Rugby does not need a purpose built stadium and would fill an exisiting stadium, adding an additional vibrant and youthful tone for the Olympic. Rugby would extend the number of potential medal-winning nations in what would be a true world championship. Countries that could aspire to Olympic success in Rugby include Fiji, Samoa, Argentina, South Africa, Kenya and New Zealand. Rugby would increase funds to grow the Olympic Movement, by attracting new commercial partners and spectators. At the same time Rugby would enjoy increased funding and access to facilities from National Olympic Committees as an Olympic sport. Go on get this wonderful game of rugby on board!
