If you look at the top three most viewed videos about rugby on You Tube, there is no rugby played.

First on the list is a clip of a singer who made it to the finals of Britain’s Got Talent, who played rugby for his local side. Second, almost inevitably is the Haka.

Third, there is a very funny video of a Frenchman running onto the pitch in top league game as if he is one of the team. He shakes the referee’s hand, runs the length of the pitch scores a try, converts it and is then arrested.

Much of the rugby we enjoy comes off the pitch. Rugby is common point of contact. Whereas a top try should be the most viewed, it is connectivity of the game through culture that draws many people to the game.
