Rugby looks so intense and fun. I'd love to just try it out a few times. I was really small and didn't really hit my growth spurt till the end of high school so I never considered real physical sports like football.
I've been in love with basketball though since I can remember. Was undersized in high school but basically made the team by being an amazing shooter and hustling my ass off. I still play pick up pretty regularly but I also train muy thai kickboxing and Kali/Escrima (filipino stick fighting).
I enjoy playing all kinds of sports with friends though (Tennis, soccer, football, water polo, whatever is going down). But ya, never played rugby yet.
Rugby is a tough game to play at a "pickup" level. There's a variant called "touch" that's pretty fun, but it's completely different from a normal game with contact.
I'd recommend sitting down and watching a highlight video which will give you a sense of why rugby is so exciting and dynamic. And then if you can find a local pub that shows some big international games, you can go watch with die-hard fans which is an awesome experience in itself.
