Daily Q&A – Day 12 – Top Rugby Bloggers

Still on the sporting tip, today on the Daily Q&A challenge we profile top rugby bloggers.

England won the Six Nations title less than a week ago, and awards and more await the players.

For those that don’t know, the Six Nations Championship is an annual international rugby union competition involving six European sides: England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales.

Rugby is incredibly popular in countries as far apart geographically as Argentina and France but how did rugby get its name?

Real Rugby history or anecdote?

I don’t know how anecdotal this is, see if you agree:

The legend goes something like this. A long time ago a bunch of boys were playing soccer at Rugby School in England. One of the boys, called William Webb Ellis, picked up the ball and ran with it over the goal line. Obviously others thought this a great idea and thus the game of Rugby was born.

On to rugby bloggers. With such a popular, and physical sport, you are bound to find diehard supporters and equally diehard bloggers.

The naming of blogs do it justice: Blood and Mud, Rugby Dump being a few of the more popular publications.

Similar to football fans, rugby fans take to expressing their opinion online during matches, especially when some silverware is at stake. Which brings me to the point of this post!

If you could ask a Top Rugby Blogger just one question, what would it be? And who would you ask?
