Is there a game going on that rugby imitates? Like Plato's 'idea'?. Do the positions of the players have more relevance than being for the sole purpose of playing the game of rugby in its on field form? What was the game born from? Was it a need for sport? Or was the sport of it born from something else? From an attitude of a way to live one’s life? That it ‘the game of rugby’ is merely a simplistic and inarticulate cultural expression of something much more meaningful and relevant to our everyday lives?
