    Rugby in the whole is played by and followed by a more educated group.......

    In the same way negatives are not booed at etc the tries and such like are often not celebrated in the same manner as a goal in football either.

    Also, the crowd probably feels less attached from the rugby player with a more modest salary and often more effort made on the pitch........... no diving, cheating, faking injuries etc

    Exactly this.
    Actually reflecting on that post and your usual accuracy in happenings within the club I'm really really happy to hear that. it might be the first time in my life I've ever wanted us to lose.

    This probably explains why I find rugby so unutterably boring.

    Just have to say, "If rugby was that better than football, they wouldn't need to pick the ball up with their hands"!
