And, if you still aren't convinced:

"Rugby is not for prissy girls.  You learn to blow your nose without a kleenex and count each bruise with pride.  Your field might resemble a pig wallow one week or a slab of concrete the next.  It may take your parents a LONG time to adjust.  Your body can feel like you've been in a minor accident every weekend and you'll learn the true meaning of a bad hair day.  You will cry.  You will laugh.  You will sweat.  You will freeze.  If you want to be good, you will work harder than you ever thought you could and you will do it with a team full other women with potentially synchronized menstrual cycles.  Don't let ANYONE ever tell you you're not an athlete.  You're the truest kind - you play for the sheer love of it.  You will get stronger, faster, fitter, and braver, you will make unlikely and wonderful friends.  You will learn more every time you play - and some of that will even be about the game." ~ Anonymous Women's Rugby Player
