    Rugby Survey

    Hello people. If you have time I would really appreciate if you could fill in this survey. I am doing some research for an Eco assigment about what motivates people to want to participate in playing rugby.


    Rugby Survey

    How old are you?

    (0-12) (13-19) (20-35) (35-50) (50+)


    Have you ever played rugby?


    If so what made you want to play rugby?



    Do you still play rugby? If not, why?




    Do you follow provincial and international rugby?



    Do you care if your country or your province loses?



    When your province or your country win does it make you feel better about the sport?



    Does anything scare/ worry or stop you from playing rugby?



    Any other comment about what you may think stops or encourages people to play rugby?






    Thank you for your time

    Rugby Survey

    How old are you?
    (20-35) 20


    Have you ever played rugby?
    Yes

    If so what made you want to play rugby?
    I could walk to training from my dad's shop, also i wanted to play a winter sport


    Do you still play rugby? If not, why?
    No, shoulder and knee injuries



    Do you follow provincial and international rugby?
    Yes both


    Do you care if your country or your province loses?
    Depend to who, Australia to NZ yes. NSW to Qld or ACT yes. I don't care when Sri Lanka loses, cus they never win.


    When your province or your country win does it make you feel better about the sport?
    Not really


    Does anything scare/ worry or stop you from playing rugby?
    I've been knocked out a few times, but when you start playing you don't think about it.


    Any other comment about what you may think stops or encourages people to play rugby?
    When Lomu and Jonny are fully fit, that will encourage move people to play rugby. No one play is better then those two IMO.

    Yes

    Its just a great sport. My Dad actually got me into it, coz he was playing grade rugby when I was like 8, so I just went from there

    Do you still play rugby? If not, why?

    Yes

    Do you follow provincial and international rugby?

    Yes

    Do you care if your country or your province loses?

    Yes

    When your province or your country win does it make you feel better about the sport?

    Yes

    Does anything scare/ worry or stop you from playing rugby?

    Not really, but me and my mates always talk about the possibility of a biff this weekend, particularly if its a school we hate. I sometimes worry that these things get taken too far, and can lead to assaults before/after the game at the mall or in the city or wherever. Its happened before.

    Any other comment about what you may think stops or encourages people to play rugby?

    People are scared to get out there and give Rugby a real go. They worry that they will get hurt, so if they do play, they go in soft. What they need to understand is that the harder you go in, and the more ferocious you play, the less chance you are of gettig hurt.

    Peer pressure, basically, although I do enjoy it
    Do you still play rugby? If not, why?
    Yes
    Do you follow provincial and international rugby?
    Both.
    Do you care if your country or your province loses?
    Province, no. Country, yes.
    When your province or your country win does it make you feel better about the sport?
    No, it has no effect on my outlook of rugby.
    Does anything scare/ worry or stop you from playing rugby?
    Yes, the fact that anything can be broken at any time, like a hitup, tackle, ruck, maul or scrum can all land you in hospital.
    Any other comment about what you may think stops or encourages people to play rugby?
    A rugby player once said, "I've broken my jaw, arm, leg and all of my fingers, and I still think I could give it a good shake 10 years after retirement. But I wouldn't last ten minutes in rugby league."
    "The Australian cricket captain is the Prime Minister Australia wishes it had. Steve Waugh is that man, Michael Clarke is not." - Jarrod Kimber

    (20-35)

    Have you ever played rugby?

    Yes

    If so what made you want to play rugby?

    It was a game where my size & strength were attributes.

    Do you still play rugby? If not, why?

    Yes, but very occasionally. Indolence & ageing process are my excuses!

    Do you follow provincial and international rugby?

    Yes.

    Do you care if your country or your province loses?

    To an almost pathetic degree.

    When your province or your country win does it make you feel better about the sport?

    Yes, naturally enough. That's true of any sport I watch.

    Does anything scare/ worry or stop you from playing rugby?

    Nah, I work in an office so any injuries wouldn't stop me from doing that. Worse luck....

    Any other comment about what you may think stops or encourages people to play rugby?

    What other sport is England currently world champions at?!

    The issue with Polynesian players maturing earlier and there being a large weight discrepancy between kids of the same age - puts a lot of parents off letting their kids play.
