Rugby Union would not mathmatically be considered a fair game as it can be won by playing tactically. "A game in which a given player can always win by playing correctly is therefore called an unfair game".It is widely known that rugby can be played tactically, one tactic maybe to pick much larger and faster players than the other team thus creating and unfair game.
