“Rugby is great. The players don’t wear helmets or padding; they just beat the living daylights out of each other and then go for a beer. I love that.”

– Joe Theismann

“The most scared I had ever been was the first time I sang at a rugby match, Australia versus New Zealand, in front of one hundred thousand people. I had a panic attack the night before because people have been booed off and never worked again….just singing one song, the national anthem.”

– Hugh Jackman

“The scum and the tackle are two really contentious areas of the game. If you get those two aspects right, most rugby matches will work in  your favor.”

– Alan Lewis

“I never ever believed that I would be able to give up on this dream which has driven me to live, breathe, love and embrace the game of rugby from the earliest days that I can remember.”

– Jonny Wilkinson

“Wrestling and Boxing is like Ping-Pong and Rugby. There is no connection.”

– Mickey Rourke

“I didn’t have to play rugby that well, and I didn’t have to play cricket that well, because I had this voice.”

– Tom Jones

“He was a professional rugby player in the area that I played as a youngster. So a lot of people who I went to school with knew who he was and knew that he was black. So I would get racist taunts in school.”

– Ryan Giggs

“I Come from a sports family and my husband is a rugby player.”

– Kirsty Gallacher

“It is a really exciting time to be involved in Welsh rugby.”

– Jonah Lomu

“As a kid in New Zealand, you play cricket in summer and rugby in winter. I played cricket and hockey. Not Rugby. I wasn’t brawny enough for it. Or silly enough, perhaps.”

– Glenn Turner

“Playing football and rugby is Samoan sport. It’s part of the conversation at church. It’s part of the conversation in their barbershops, in the grocery stores. It’s what everyone is aware of and familiar with. They take a lot of pride in beating you can take in the course of that sport.”

– Junior Seau

“A vote for Japan is a vote for the future of rugby. We will do our best to make rugby a global sport.”

– Yoshiro Mori
