To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

Yeah American Rugby Players so the hard hitters are not the world Champion Players or even players in their league?
unless it was the best of the best and a larger range of players who had been playing since school it is not an even comparison.
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”

Difficult to compare some white nerdy weekend rugby players to an elite NFL African-American.
