Abstract

Among the sports practiced in Europe, rugby is one of the most violent, where injuries are abound. Yet it is a sport where the fans are the most disciplined. Until now, rugby has not had any serious problems, contrary to football. Yet the rugby world has begun to change... but is it going the same way as football? By closely following the fans on match-day, we will see how every day they live their passion for rugby, and we'll begin to understand the unique atmosphere specific to rugby.
