Apart from the warm beer??

Such a tough question, and one i often get asked and still i have no idea how to answer it, BUT...

I'd have to say the biggest difference between the 2 Hemispheres would have to be a big difference in Attitude to playing. Down south, Super 15 teams, All Blacks, Wallaby's Springboks etc adopt an attitude of we are trying to score tries and if we let some in by doing so then thats what can happen, i would say Northern Hemisphere teams (generally, not all and not all the time) seem to be a bit more conservative, regarding risky plays, running from own end, offloading in traffic, game plan, weather conditions for a few examples. skill levels, fitness, strength, ability is fairly even worldwide. It comes down to attitude to play. this is my opinion on this, and its not gospel, feel free to give your thoughts.
