Why Rugby Union players make better OHS professionals than Rugby League players
By the late George Robotham
OHS is about leadership, teamwork, skill and communications in an enjoyable environment.
Let us compare the 2 Rugby codes.
Leadership Rugby league is famous for leaders who rat on their team mates, have problems with grog, drugs and their penis. Rugby Union leaders are squeaky clean. Having said that I acknowledge Wally, Alf and Darren
Teamwork Having been knocked out in a Rugby Union game in Rockhampton and requiring some stitches I regained consciousness in hospital to find my team mates and a carton of XXXX in my room, how noble is that!
Skill Having played both there is no doubt in my mind Rugby Union is a much more skilful game, particularly in the forwards
Communications It has been said by many that the most striking difference between the 2 codes is that Rugby Union players can put at least 2 coherent sentences together after the game.
Bearing the above in mind it will become obvious that Rugby Union players make better OHS professionals
