    We only stayed for the first 2 games, but what great fun. By that time, I was about lobster-colored and in sore need of shade and Toña. We must find out more about these Nica teams and where they practice, cause I'm hooked on Nica rugby now!

    Rougher than hockey and American football.

    No high-tech helmets, no "rigid" (high-impact) plastic shin and shoulder guards. Shin guards are allowed but must be worn underneath socks. Mouth guards are allowed and recommended.

    Played it in high school. Concussed twice.

    These guys are playing seven-man rugby rather than 13 or 15 men per side. More finesse, less hitting. A small-man's version of the game.
