Rugby is a complete contact sport. A tackle in football is supposed to be contact free where in rugby, fully body contact is required, the players are expected to use their body as a battering ram (especially the forwards) - the rucking is done with the feet which means that there is high chance of injury. Rugby players don't wear protection like football players, therefore are much more vulnerable to injuries and concussions. Rugby is a much more continuous than football which has much more stoppages, altough some of the hits of football are quite hard, but everytime some one is tackled the game stops. Look at the rugby scrum, which is much more physical than a ruck.
Because it's a different sport
