I just read that Rooney trained as a boxer when he was younger...lol. And that he is a NUT over it! Maybe that helps him on the field!!! It certainly explains some of his "toughness", and could help him go the extra mile in soccer!
He does have some boxing skills and you could see them in this thread that I created:
His boxing ability gives him the edge over other players because he has the stamina and endurance of a boxer even though he has taken lots of body hits.
That video is something else. I think his swings for boxing are a little wide though. And the shot at the end with the building - great.
And he cleans! Okay thats just wrong, my wife can never see that video now, she might leave me if she did.
