Stumbled across European Touch Rugby competition on BBC I Player. Men in vests and baseball hats worn the wrong way round chucking balls about. Watched it for 30 secs before boredom kicked in. Am I missing something?

So after a brief watch of a game you donít understand you dismiss it as rubbish

What is to understand that takes longer than 30 seconds to grasp?

Touch rugby is a great sport that allows people of all ages & abilities to have a bit of fun. What you are missing Dick is that it is not a sport for the spectator, so why anybody would choose to televise it is questionable. Cheap television filler perhaps?

Could be the fact that itís the european championship here in the UK and they are wanting to grow the sport

Thanks. This makes sense. But it was on I Pla I have no wish to belittle those who enjoy playing TR. But it is about as watchable as Walking Football.
