Photo Of the Day:Just How Rough Is this Game?

In terms of quality, this image does not cut it but story behind it is, for the faint hearted gruesome. I was out Shooting Rugby over the weeekend. This particular game was Buffaloes vs UTL Kobs. A lot has been said of how rough Rugby as a sport is rough. And i didn’t particularly go to document that side of the game but once i got this shot which by the way is heavily cropped just to emphasise this argument, the whole debate came right back! Is this game that cruel? Look at how the UTL player(white) is being handled..His ears literally pilled off, shirt torn, stomach, pinched to the inside……Yes, the game is intense which requires pain tolerance.Even that alone might not be enough; you just have to be tough enough i guess to continue with the sport.
