Nah - Both Soccer and Rugby styles are completely different in various
Professional Soccer in Denmark for example, has a lot more ball-play and a
lot less tackling, where as Soccer in Britain is very physical - which is
why so many European footballers are injured in their first months here -
before they learn to protect themselves.
The same with Rugby in NZ - much more physical and 'dirty' according to the
rugby players from my old club :>)
Of course dance styles and behavious is different in SCD also from Country
to country, but it wouldn't interfere with our own dance style.

Of course Rugby football is another activity which can be learnt in one part
of the world, say New Zealand, and practiced in another, say G.B and I'm
sure that there are many other examples.
