About This Quiz

They say that rugby is a hooligan's game played by gentlemen (and football is the reverse), but it's a game that is won by tacticians and the courageous. Whether it's signing the untried but potentially brilliant youngster, letting a bold manager make sweeping adjustments to team strategy, or bringing in an innovation to the stadium that could make a lot of money but contains the possibility of bamboozling loyal fans, there are plenty of ways to introduce risk into an already risky game.

After all, rugby is inherently pretty violent, with injuries being rather common even in an age of greatly improved padding. That means a star player can be put out of commission at any moment. All in all, the risk levels are extremely high, and not all club owners or managers seek to add to that with additional risky ideas like changing the club's business model, player recruitment strategy or tactics on the field. This is all well and good if what you are doing is already working, but with a competition that is ready to try new things to gain an edge, it's important to be willing to adapt. How you walk that line in rugby tells us a great deal about how you tackle it in real life (pun intended). Let's find out what sort of risk-taker you really are!
