Best. Job. Ever.

1. Everybody knows that rugby is the hottest sport to exist in the world ever.

It's basically all about thighs and butts. They sometimes throw a ball around but that's not really important.

2. The game involves a lot of thunderous thighs.

3. And a lot of bouncing butts.

4. Since the physio has to deal with these thighs and butts, it's fair to say they have the most important job on the team.

5. And there's more than one reason to be jealous of the job they have to do.

Some people have the best jobs. The job of a rugby club masseur 😜😳

6. When somebody injures themselves, it's the physio's job to get on the pitch and sort it out.

7. And obviously that's important and we're all incredibly jealous of their healing hands, but just look at the men they get to comfort.

8. Thighs are like, the most important part of any rugby game and it's the physio's job to look after them.

9. And it's not just the thighs you have to be jealous about. A physio gets to massage their biceps too.

10. And stroke those beautiful faces.

There is a very slim chance this guy is actually just stroking this man's face, but it's a reason to be jealous anyway.

13. Obviously being a physio is serious business and should not be taken lightly.

You can't just wander onto the pitch and start rubbing people down unfortunately, you actually have to know your shit.

14. And they're always busy because they need to be at the beck and call of all the players in their team.

What with all the tackling going on, physios are needed on the pitch quite often.

15. But if you can get through all the years of studying to be one, then you get to focus on the important things.
