Golf is flog spelt backwards. Or as Mark Twain said, "Golf is a good walk ruined." It's an activity, not a sport.

Rugby, on the other hand, is played by a hundred countries and at a very high level by 30. It's long overdue for inclusion.

To say Rugby is played by over 100 countries in like saying AFL is an international sport. At best 10 counries play it seriously. Further, included is Rugby 7's which is not even close to being the pinnacle of Rugby. NZ coach is quoted as saying he hopes npw they will be able to attract some of the 'good' players.
