      Rugby should be in the olympics as it is a far more recognised global sport than half the ridiculous events in Olympics. Also if soccer is in olympics why not rugby...other sports like beach soccer..beach volleyball arent sports are somthing you do at the beach for fun. Rugby can be played by anyone anywhere like soccer and therefore has more appeal to the global population.
