    Those swipes are probably more powerful and faster than UFC G level athlete's proper technique strikes.

    That's F-Level American Rugby.

    Real Rugby:
    Holds back and still generates more power than 90% of UFC Heavyweights.

    I've seen my fair share of bar brawls and that looked brutal. Those were NOT slaps.

    everyone thinks they fight like muhammad ali or stipe, etc. in reality 99.9% of the people look worse than that

    That to me looked like a high-level street fight; I'd imagine shredoggers would have gotten stumped there.

    Indeed. Id watch rugby honestly. Tried to join a local league for shits and giggles but I blew out the shoulder snowboarding.

    Both are hilariously better than diveball regardless.

    Yes it has been, not quite to the same extent but there have been some concerns over the effects of concussions.

    In the past few years there have been rule/law adjustments to prevent concussions...refs have been told to crack down more harshly on things like taking a player out in the air (not legal in rugby) and contact to the head when making a tackle...even if it's accidental. In rugby league they banned the should charge (ie. like in rugby union, where you have to make an attempt to wrap your arm in a tackle). There is also HIA (head injuriy assessments) where if a player is thought to have a concussion he needs to be subbed off and then OK'ed by a doctor in order to be allowed to continue.
