I've never understood why in rugby you get a penalty for scoring a goal (to use a football analogy).

Yeah i play ugby for my local team, pretty good fun, i play scrum half usually, but fullback if i have to :S

Where do you play?

And monkey, it's a conversion, just gives you a chance to get more points i suppose, makes the game more interestin :D

Played Flanker. mainly blind side. or 8. some times center if I was needed. I like running into people.

Just thought I'd say posts in Chit Chat don't increase post count.

When I play I'm mostly wing, the person the runs away from all the big, strong, violent people :P

In the beginning of rugby, a try only gave you the opportunity to have a kick over the posts for points - it didn't give you any points.

Yet now it just gives the team who have just got a try and the points for a try to extend the points advantage even more. Doesn't make sense...

It's not thaaaaaaaaaat hard to kick for 3 in a match. 5 for a try is notably more difficult. 2 kicks still outweigh a single ball down, but with the conversion you keep the edge. Of course, you've gotta get the score in a decent position to keep the conversion doable...

NB: Points apply to real rugby, not that namby-pamby League shite ;)

Yeah I play(ed). I was playing outside centre for ages then I decided I wanted to play prop, (both loose and tight) I haven't played since college but really badly want to get back into it, but my fitness level has dropped loads, so need to get back on it as soon as I've done all my RAF medical/fitness.

I play rugby, im pretty much a jack of all trades having played Fly half, full back and both centre posistions during school and college years. Since then I started playing second row and flanker and part timed at number 8 too so i can do most things. Im not particularly good at any of them but I can do them. Havent started playing for this season as of yet, really got into cricket in the summer and i'm looking to keep that up as it turns out im actually quite good at it.

Aimed at the topic starter, how tall are you? 100kg at like 5'4 is alot but say youre like 6'3 or something, not that big at all.

Could at least spell Sale right :P

As a matter of interest, how heavy + tall are you? I play lock and am pathetically scrawny. 17, 6'3"ish and 12st dead. Bloody appalling. Should at least be 13st at a minimum and even then that would be light. Was quite annoying playing with a 6'8" no8 at 18st.
