I married a kiwi and over the past 6 or 7 years have gotten to know rugby well and often thought about comparisons. NFL football is far more violent, rugby has rules inplace for high hits, hard hits and hits where you lift a players legs off the ground. I don't think I would want to be in a scrum or a ruck and those appear to be pretty much unregulated and a free for all. Regarding the players and if NFL players would dominate, I simply have to assume they would. The New Zealand 100M record is in the low 10 second range, but the fastest yearly time recorded is usually not that fast and not even competitive at a national level highschool meet in the US. So I assume the US players would be much faster, I also think that some of the taller players from the US would be asignificant upgrade over those in Rugby. At the end of the day the US typically produces the best athletes in the world and I really question how athletic the players are from NZ, SA, AUS and ENG are. Aside from Australia they are simply not competitive with US athletes. They are both great games although my wife calls US football players, rugby players in costumes. She can't stand the constant stop and go and has never been able to adapt to the slow pace. Which this years bowl season took it to a whole new level and was more of a commercial with football intermingled that a football game and I almost found it intolerable, but that is a seperate conversation.
