Frankly, promenade, costume, bravado, and game posturing aside, I found most of the participants with whom I spoke (did not speak to subject - just the way it happened) to be most gracious, thoughtful, and particularly appreciative that someone outside the rugby community took the time to attend the tournament.

In my experience they are in the minority. And, injuries are common and often not trivial, well beyond scratches and bruises; a hefty price to pay for a pint or two, or three..
