Aye, and its good to watch even without having a thorough understanding of tactics and the rules.

Gotta love ignorance!

(btw I played Rugby, loved it)

And anything you have to say about sports instantly goes out of the window. That requires real stamina and determination, I mean its so fucking hard to stand still for 6 hours and not fall asleep.

OK you throw a ball and someone whacks it, apart from that its just standing still all day. Please tell me where I am wrong.

How about we start with the first clause above ^ you don't throw the ball.

You reckon these guys arre standing still? The last catch is by a retired Rugby League player.

Check this out, you think the bowler is standing around, that projectile is going close to 100 mph and the Batsman no helmet! letting the ball hit him rather than get out what a tough old pommy bastard.

The Bowlers jog a little bit, but there are only 3 to 5 of those in a team. Whenever I see it on the TV they wear helmets, boxes, shinpads, and armoured gloves. In fact they tend to look more like teenage girls in goal playing hockey than sportsmen based on the description of sports you gave earlier.

From the dictionary: "throw send something from one's hand through the air by a rapid movement of the arm and hand"

Michael Holding's 'jog' is faster than you've ever run in your life and I'd love to see you even stand on the pitch facing genuine quick bowling. You could wear all the armour you want you'd still shit yourself.

You reckon this guy feels the same way as you? And the bowler is not even that quick.

Alright, so it hurts when you get hit with a cricket ball. It also hurts when you have a football kicked at your bollocks.

This is what a sprint looks like, that is not a sprint.
