Even the USA Eagles’ mascot likes to get in on the action.

Rugby is often compared to American football, with each sport encompassing fast-paced plays, unbelievable tackles and hardcore fans who are loyal until the end. In fact, many NFL players have gone on to play rugby or vice versa, including Carlin Isles, Jarryd Hayne, Bennie Brazell, Manfred More, Richard Tardits, Nate Ebner, Gary Anderson and Hayden Smith. Though these sports do have their differences, neither rugby nor football fans will be disappointed by these players incredible display of athletic might.
