If This Play Is Any Indication, We Should All Start Watching Rugby

Rugby isn't just ruptured testicles (though we'd probably pay more attention to it if it was): It's a game of heart, toughness, crafty play under pressure and occasional improvisational brilliance. This, a score by Ireland in its match against Wales earlier today, is the best rugby play we have ever seen. It's also the only rugby play we've ever seen, but we'll be damned if isn't it a corker. See 1:23 in the video above for a real sense of what exactly happened there. NFL wide receivers could learn something from that kind of outside-the-box thinking. They can even study the GIF.


Ireland went on to win 30-22, and this play accounted for...some of those points, we think.
