Rugby – but with absolutely no rules – this is BRUTAL
We’ve just been sent in this new video that shows an early version of rugby and it’s absolutely BRUTAL.
This new post from Youtube channel ‘Die Hard Rugby’ shows just how violent this form of the sport can be.
Warning – this isn’t for the faint-hearted.
This brutal blood game comes from Italy and we haven’t heard of it before.
In all fairness – it makes conventional rugby look like child’s play!
This sport is added in the description for the video.
Calcio Storico Fiorentino is an early form of football or rugby that originated in 16th-century Italy. Once widely played, the sport is thought to have started in the Piazza Santa Croce in Florence.
Calcio Storico Fiorentino is known to be an extremely traditional sport played with great pride by its players. Calcio Storico Fiorentino is possibly the most violent sport played today.
What do you think about this brutal sport? Would you take it up?
