This is the first time I have actually seen organized Rugby being played, so I was given a crash course by my friend Vincent Johnson (a fellow photog).

Watching this for the first time, gave me a new respect for the payers and the game. It is such a non-stop physically demanding sport, that watching NFL football is going to seem like mere kids stuff.

If you ever have a chance to watch a Rugby match be it the Chicago Blaze or Dragons, I for one guarantee you 80 mins of action packed hits, kicks, tackles and running you may have never seen before.

I give the Chicago Blaze Rugby Club a well earned, hard player two thumbs up.

Great job guys!

I'll give this event 5 Tickets!
