But haven't they seen ice hockey?

From Ruck and Maul on

From Russia with shove

We run this cable story without comment: Russians playing a game of amateur rugby have been arrested by police who mistook the match for a mass brawl. "We got a call to our control room saying there was a fight involving a lot of people on some waste ground just outside town," RIA news agency quoted a police official in the southern city of Rostov-on-Don as saying. The players and supporters, nearly 100 people in total, were taken to the local police station. They were released without charge when officers realised they had been playing rugby, the news agency reported.

The Russians are used to ice hockey, aren't they?

Insert tagline here...
