Denting cars, dodging fire, pushing heaps of scrap metal and breaking through concrete walls are just some of the unreal displays of strength displayed in this new commercial for the Rugby Football League (RFL). In preparation for the 2012 playoffs, the Rugby Football League released this commercial titled The Rugby League of the Extraordinary to get fans excited.
Rugby is a notoriously rough sport with huge followings in places like the UK and Australia. Without any pads at all, the hits in rugby may not seem as harmful as those in football. However, the padding in football is extensive, which allows for faster speeds and more confidence when making a tackle. In Rugby, the only armor a player has is his own thick skin.
