Rugby vs. American football: history and contrast

NFL Football season began last week in USA as well as the 2015 Rugby World Cup in England.

As American Football in the US, rugby is one of the most popular sports in France. It has its roots in the South of France and the French passion for this sport is rooted in cultural history. But did you know these two sports have the same origin: a college game played more than 190 years ago?

We will discuss the history of these sports and contrast the differences between rugby and American football. This discussion will appeal to both sport fans and those interested in culture and history.

Presentation in French(Powerpoint in English). Discussion in French and English.
