Rugby players are athletes, that is not a question. They just aren't even close to the level of NFL,NBA,NHL players. Asserting otherwise is simply ridiculous.
Judging by this post, what you consider to make one an athlete is different to myself. I cant argue with you if we aren't speaking the same language. Look dude you have no idea what real rugby is. In nsw australia there is something like 20 divisions from proffesional down. Your division would have been very close to the bottom. There is an enormous jump between the bottom and proffesional. Just as there would be 3rd division football and nfl. Ask anyone from a country whose rugby standards are internationally competitive. Ask them what they think of rugby players. Are nfl players on the reg maybe slighty more athletic? Maybe a small bit. Bit hey with the US population thats not surprising. There is a great pool to choose from compared to say an australia. Having said that anyone who thinks a nfl player walks onto a rugby field and destroys is fooling themselves. These are professional athletes selected from ultra competitive systems. They are athletic as ****.
