A few professional rugby players have tried moves to American football teams over the years. They've all given up because they couldn't cope with the mental side of the game.

And by the mental side of the game, you are referring to the nuances of the game, the set plays and the need to know how each position plays and what they exactly need to do.

That is what I covered when I mentioned the futility of trying to switch to something radically different to what you have played your whole life. Unless that is you put in a huge effort in learning the game and training (under expert tutorlage) like you never have before.

Even switching between Leaugue and Union is not straight forward as many at the professional level have learnt. Besides the wing and the occasional centre, they don't mix and match. The forwards play completely differently as do the halves.

Your Gridiron mates would switch to League easier (not easily) as the game stops and resets at the play the ball. Union is a different matter as it doesn't stop (except for penalties) and in the Northern Hemisphere the Gridiron blokes lying in the ruck would be raked to death by the oppositions studs.
