The similarities are there, especially in the physical nature between the sports, but as Greysen Lincoln points out, there’s one major difference between rugby and football.
“It’s a lot more of an active sport. You’ve got to be a lot more aware. You have to know where all your guys are unlike in football,” Lincoln said. “It’s a lot more team-oriented. You’ve all got to be a cohesive unit. That’s also the case in football, but it’s a lot more apparent in rugby.”
