There has been some discussion over this. However, Rugby is not the parent sport of football. The name football originated from Europe, and the sport was invented by a very smart person!

How many killed by rugby compared with American football?

I'm not sure of precise figures on either sport, however I do know that it is VERY rare that a Rugby player will die from injuries sustained during a match. Many player's careers have been ended due to broken bones etc. But in my years of being a rugby fan I can't remember one death. That's not saying there haven't been any, but it is a rarity.
