In defense of rugby

In response to the article "Violence Darkens Rugby's Future," Oct. 25, I would like to point out that rugby is not a violent sport. There is more violence (in the sense of deliberate intention to harm) in American football or professional ice-hockey.Rugby is a tough physical-contact sport, but when played in the right spirit, under the discipline of a good referee, it remains a great team sport.
