If you know which team is better this can help, but you just never really know where on the pitch the game will be played.
Being near the try line can get some good action shots of scoring a try, but the action can be good elsewhere on the pitch.
A long, fast lens is good for rugby, but I'd avoid converters if you can, I've used them in the past but not anymore. Don't like them.
But like wave01 says, where will you be and what kit do you have??
I stand on the side lines I have a Nikon D7000 using a sigma 18 -250 zoom lens. I cannot afford 2 cameras that is why I use this lens.
