Recreational Warfare?

BETHESDA, MD. 11 October, 2014– The American University men’s rugby team battled the University of Maryland on an unusually cold and wet October afternoon at Burning Tree Elementary School in Bethesda, MD. As shown below, where American’s Adam Blech is being physically intercepted by his opponent in red, the game was a muddy brawl. Rugby can be seen as a recreational form of conflict, where players utilize brutal force to obtain the ball and score goals. American University left this battlefield victorious, with a final score of 48-5.
