Since the sports conception at an English private school sometime in the early 19th century, Rugby has grown to the level it now enjoys as a main priority in many nations across the world. Though fairly un-championed for the most part throughout the US (the national team is gradually getting better though…), Rugby is insanely popular throughout all parts of the UK, Ireland, France, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and even Argentina!
