    I destroyed my knees playing when I was a teen. I played prop for a men's league when I was 15-16 - but I shouldn't have been playing at that level because my body wasn't really ready for the abuse.

    I still enjoy watching the game but I'm too old and beat up to play it or any other sport. I'm just happy to be able to walk most days. ;)

    Heck ya. I played a few years in college and still love watching it. I started out at lock (#4) and ended up playing #8, which was the best. I briefly played for the Jesters as a flanker, but it would take me a while to get in rugby shape. I also had three concussions while playing; the last one being pretty severe so I really shouldn't play more anyway. The Six Nations was broadcast on BBC America, and the matches were fun to watch.
