Rugby Quotations

After biting Sean Fitzpatrick's ear- For an 18-month suspension, I feel I probably should have torn it off. Then at least I could say, 'Look, I've returned to South Africa with the guy's ear.'
Johan le Roux (1994)
As Erica Roe streaked at Twickenham -Bill, there's a guy just run on the park with your backside on his chest.
Steve Smith (1982)
I may not have been very tall or very athletic, but the one thing I did have was the most effective backside in world rugby.
Jim Glennon (1991)
I prefer rugby to soccer. I enjoy the violence in rugby, except when they start biting each other's ears off.
Elizabeth Taylor (1972)
I think Brian Moore's gnashers are the kind you get from a DIY shop and hammer in yourself. He is the only player we have who looks like a French forward.
Paul Randall (1994)
If the game is run properly as a professional game, you do not need 57 old farts running rugby.
Will Carling (1995)
I'm still an amateur, of course, but I became rugby's first millionaire five years ago.
David Campese (1991)
On England's new rubber training suit-As you run around Battersea Park in them, looking like a cross between a member of the SAS and Blake's Seven, there is always the lingering fear of arrest.
Brian Moore (1995)
On female rugby teams - Everybody thinks we should have moustaches and hairy arses, but in fact you could put us all on the cover of Vogue.
Helen Kirk (1987)
On trying to stop Phil Horrocks-Taylor-Every time I went to tackle him, Horrocks went one way, Taylor went the other, and all I got was the bloody hyphen.
Nick England
Rugby football is a game I can't claim absolutely to understand in all its niceties, if you know what I mean. I can follow the broad, general principles, of course. I mean to say, I know that the main scheme is to work the ball down the field somehow and deposit it over the line at the other end and that, in order to squalch this programme, each side is allowed to put in a certain amount of assault and battery and do things to its fellow man which, if done elsewhere, would result in 14 days without the option, coupled with some strong remarks from the Bench.
P. G. Wodehouse Very Good, Jeeves (1930)
The lads say my bum is the equivalent of one 'Erica'.
