It's "rugger buggers".


I’m aware. It was a play on those words. If you’re terminally ill/dying/dead, you’re buggered. 
 

Never mind…

Former New Zealand prop Carl Hayman has revealed he has been diagnosed with early-onset dementia aged just 41.

 

What year will Rugby get banned? I am predicting 2027- it will be much sooner than most expect. 

 

 

May as well ban football, american football, ice hockey, boxing, mma, and pro wrestling while we're at it.

I don't think these things will be banned,but if you look at boxing it's a sport that has seen a significant drop in youth level participation in 1st world economies the last 40 years. Really only the poorest of parents allow their children to participate in boxing now.I suspect american football and rugby will gradually head in that direction where parents view it as the pro's don't outweigh the cons.

You could definitely make a case for banning all Motorsport and Cricket (the Phil Hughes incident could easily be cited) ahead of Rugby. Don't support any being banned myself
