Kit (rugby Football)
A traditional rugby union kit consists of a jersey (often imitated by fashion labels and called a "rugby shirt"), shorts, jockstrap / compression shorts, long rugby socks and boots with studs. Some modest padding is allowed on the head, shoulders and collarbone, but it must be sufficiently light, thin and compressible to meet World Rugby standards.[1]. Players must wear a mouthguard to guard against concussion and chipping of the teeth.Famous Rugby Jerseys, early 1920s boys magazine illustration of the playing stripes of the top clubs and countries.Contents1 Boots 2 Tackle bags 3 See also 4 ReferencesBoots[edit] Traditionally, rugby boots were of a high cut above the ankle and its the pride of a rugby player

Third Place Playoff
A third place playoff, match/game for third place, bronze medal game or consolation game is a single match that is included in many sporting knockout tournaments to decide which competitor or team will be credited with finishing third and fourth. The teams that compete in the third place playoff game are usually the two losing semi-finalists in a particular knockout tournament. Many tournaments use the third place playoff to determine who wins the bronze medal. In some tournaments, a third place playoff is necessary for seeding purposes if three or all four semi-finalists advance to another tournament. In tournaments that do not award medals or have the third place finisher advance to something else, a third place playoff is a classification match that serves little more than as a consolation to the losing semi-finalists. A consolation game also allows teams to play more than one game after having invested time, effort and money in the quest for a championship
