I like both in different ways.

League is better to watch for domestic club rugby (and Catalans Dragons). But internationally it has to be union.

The Lions tour was awesome.

Yeah the Lions tour was brilliant. I have to choose union being born and bred in Bath. I do admit that I like league when it comes to the running game etc, but there's something about watching one group of fat men leaning on another group of fat men, punching each seven bells out of each other and then having a pint (or six) together afterwards as if nothing ever happened.

I must admit to be looking forward to the rugger season more than football this time out.

League - much more interesting game than Union which seems to be a game for drugged up thugs as far as I can see.

Either way both of them are sports with massive drugs problems both on and off the field. I had a mate involved in union a few years back and the tales he used to tell of steriod abuse make what goes on in cycling look like a tea party. Look at the way the physique of union players in particular has changed in the last few years and you're not telling me that some chemical 'assistance' wasn't involved along the way.
