An old saying in the sport of rugby, as compared to soccer, goes: Soccer is a gentlemen's sport played by hooligans; rugby
is a hooligan's sport played by gentlemen. But as anyone who has seen the Canada Rugby Union team play on the pitch, it's
clear that while they may very well be gentlemen off the field, they are most certainly giants of hyper-masculine athleticism
on the field. The Canada Rugby Union is world-renowned for being one of the most formidable opponents, and they hold nothing
back when they put on their cleats and step onto the field. With rugby
tickets from StubHub, you can see them live as they go head to head with the world's best and tear them apart!
The first game of rugby recorded in Canada took place in Montreal among artillerymen in 1864. That same year Trinity College
in Toronto published the first set of rules for the game of rugby in Canada, and ever since there has been organized chaos
unfolding on the field between the country's biggest and most fearsome athletes. But these aren't just a bunch of oafs hurtling
themselves at each other up and down the field. Quite the contrary, Canada Rugby Union is an incredibly gifted group of players
who perform at the highest levels of athletics.
Rugby is one of the oldest sports in Canada, enjoying a long history as a fan favorite right up there with the national
sport of hockey. And the country's far and away rugby leader is the Canada Rugby Union, the most elite group of powerful athletes
ever to take the field in the Great White North. Their prowess on the pitch is legendary, dating back more than a century
and continuing to uphold their legacy as exceptional sportsmen. Today, they continue to be a source of pride for the country
and a source of envy from the competition. Head over to StubHub to get your BMO
