I really believe that rugby represents the best opportunity for an athlete to apply Crossfit obtained speed, strength, endurance, and focus. It is truly the ultimate team game with all players sharing the responsibilities of passing, running, and playing both offense and defense. It is a game that has positions that will accommodate players of all sizes, and despite not wearing pads it is a game that produces significantly fewer serious injuries then American Football. Most players in the US don’t start playing the game in until college or later. So no experience in necessary and we are happy to teach those interested.
But don’t take my word for it check out this video featuring two of the World Champion New Zealand All Blacks and dedicated Crossfitters - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQCt0AWkXzE&feature=related
