I'd like to try out both of these to see which one I like playing more (since I never did any sports in high school) but I feel like just generally a casual rugby league would be easier to find due to less gear requirements

Anybody play in either type of league?

a) that's not true, think some kicker is ex-rugby

b) im hardly surprised, american footballers play basically the same position, every year from mid-teenage years. They build their body and skills to EXACTLY fit that role. eg this guy who is big as fuck but needed Oxygen after running 100 yards youtube.com/watch?v=OEIyUBf0X8E

Rugby players on the other hand have to be playing at top effort and explosively for 80 minutes

I play rugby all the time, and have played American football in the past. American football is unbelievably boring, there's more consistent action in cricket. Pausing the game every fucking 5 seconds, in rugby if you want 5 seconds your forwards have to fucking earn it. The only thing vaguely scary with American football is the limited peripheral vision the helmets give, other than that it's like playing in a sumo suit there's barely any injuries in football compared to rugby. Nothing in American football has ever come close to the aesthetic of the dynamic plays in southern hemisphere rugby, the sheer range of athletic skills and cognitive skills being displayed that fast under much more difficult circumstances of gaining territory(the main method of scoring in both games). Passing forwards is for steers and queers and you fat yank cunts don't look like fucking cowboys to me.

Why would you play any sport that gives you brain damage?

Seriously what the fuck is wrong with people. You want to change your entire perception of reality just to throw a ball around? You want anger issues, paranoia, depression, loss of body control and other mental issues for a single god damn sport?

I will never understand why people ignore the proven brain damage of these contact sports.

the rugby players at my school are the absolute chaddest of the chads, even though they arent as tall or as good looking as the other sports. on the outside i think its because they stick together and get each other into the coolest clubs and shit socially but on the inside i think its because most people pity them for doing the worst possible thing to their bodies. like wtf no reasonable college student should get "only around 2" concussions a season, jesus fuck. too rough bro, seriously.

I plan on joining the rugby team at my uni next year. Is brain damage that much of an issue? Should I be worried? It's just amateur rugby, not even close to the professional level so I'm not sure.

There have been loads of concussion awareness training in rugby from the top levels to the grass roots levels in recent years after some high profile issues. There are stricter restrictions aimed at preventing further injuries or double concussions.

The very nature of the sport though will encourage injuries. Best advice I can give is never half arse a tackle and never cower away from being tackled. That's how a lot of injuries occur.

You guys sound convincing. Anything else I should be doing to get physically ready for it? Right now I go to the gym 3 days a week, training mostly strength, and run 5-7 miles 2-3 days a week. Sprinting is probably my weakest point right now, how should I go about training it?

You should play for your university too

If you're young, NEET or old, play for your local club

Top tier mates and as far as university goes, playing a sport is a far better social scene than joining a frat. Especially cuz this is Veeky Forums and no one on this board posses the social skills to rush a proper frat

if you get brain damage while playing rugby you're doing it wrong. As far as football goes; it's nearly unavoidable unless you're a kicker
