I'm the first to admit I know nothing about team sports but someone once told me that rugby was the girls' version of American football.

Is that true?

I think you might be correct coz the last time I saw the Kiwi's on the telly they did a bit of a dance before the start!

No No, you have it quite wrong.....

American football - nancys with body armour and helments. Rugby, men with gaffer tape around their heads to prevent their ears getting bit off in he scrum.

England Rugby team, one glorious moment a few years ago but probably stand a Ribsters chance in Boatmad in the world cup in NZ!

I see. I think I'm beginning to understand but I'm still slightly confused. Is it the other game, you know the one where people in short trousers kick a ball around that is considered to be the girls' game?

I've been told that girls from America have been involved with this game internationally and have enjoyed considerable success.
