It turned out better than it could've been...

That's rugby, isn't it? It's all good.

Is it hell. Should such thuggish violence occur on the street the perpetrator would be whisked away to jail. But in the name of The Game, it's all good.

Some day in the future violent contact 'sport' will be outlawed not because of some legislation but because it will be no longer socially acceptable to inflict such injuries on fellow players.

How many youth cripples are there in NZ because "It's all good"? Or how many senior ex-players have serious mobility / long term injury issues because of their playing days of yore?

Could be a whole lot better, people. Your thoughts?
