How Many Times Would You Die In This Massive, Bench-Clearing Brawl In Pro Rugby Match?

Not sure what I’d do if you threw me in the middle of that war zone. What’s the move? Curl up in the fetal position and play dead? Try to shit your pants so no one wants to fuck with you? Dig yourself a hole? I don’t know. Which is good because I’d rather not find out how much of a coward I am.

The brawl took place between two professional rugby teams in France–the Bagarre Rugby Club de la Marine Nationale vs Royal Navy Crunch Stade. While I know nothing about either team, I find a group of excessively large men trying to hurt each other wildly entertaining. I hope you did too.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
