Sure we can't get away with a little pocket muscle action? Looking at maybe booking tickets by the end of the month so I'll give you a text.

Breaking your neck or dying?

THis page shows pages related to deaths while taking part in sport. Rugby isn't even mentioned. I myself know no rugby player who has died while playing though I don't doubt there is one. Though I could name a couple of footballers and racing drivers and indeed boxers and cyclists.

Not to be unfair though, I did some research. Your 3 times more likely to be injured playing rugby than almost any other sport.

This table is interesting. It lists categories for Insurance companies. The highest being the most expensive.... intrigingly, football is in Category 2 with Rugby.

Category 6: Bungee jumping, mountaineering (over 4,500 metres), powerboat racing, expeditions, overland trips in Africa, Asia or South America, and any professional sport.
Category 5: Hang gliding, parachuting (other than BASE jumping), paragliding, pot holing, rock climbing, mountaineering (up to 4,500 metres), off-piste skiing, ski racing or jumping, heli-skiing and ice hockey.
Category 4: Scuba diving (over 30 metres), wintersports including snowboarding, piloting aircraft.
Category 3: Scuba diving (to a max 30 metres), hot air ballooning, micro- lighting, skateboarding, white water rafting/canoeing and trekking (not in Africa, Asia or South America).
Category 2: Amateur contact sport e.g. hunting, fencing, boxing, martial arts, polo, rugby, soccer, mountain biking, parascending, high diving and jet skiing.
Category 1: Non-contact sports e.g. abseiling, motorcycle touring, yachting (inside territorial waters), tour operators' safaris (not using guns), and trekking (not remote or mountainous areas).

Also, It's found that Angling is the most dangerous in terms of death. Followed by horse racing and eventing, climbing and motor racing.

If your talking about injuries, then rugby yes, but deaths, no, several sports are more dangerous in that respect.

Hmmm, haven't really investigated the possibility of Rugby players before. Might have to get myself a little educated there...

So it seems hanging off cliff face isn't dangerous?

Bungee jumping? Oh for gods sake Neil lmao

I said POPULAR sports, meaning the real biggies that we have interest in here in Britain. Obviously people are going to die more often when they jump off cliffs! lol

That was just as an example to show you insurance companies considered football just as liable as rugby.

It can be a dangerous sport eg. O'Driscoll getting spear tackled on the Lions tour but generally I would say it is more of a physically demanding sport.
