“Once you’ve seen one rugby joke, you’ve seen a maul”

"The trouble with rugby is that it’s very repetitive, when you’ve seen one ruck you’ve seen a maul” was posted on Twitter by Tony Cowards on June 19, 2010. A “maul” is a set of moves in rugby. “Seen a maul” is a pun on “seen them all.”

Rugby Rules 101: What Is a Maul?
The maul is one of the most effective set moves in rugby. What is it and how is it so effective?

May 19, 2020 by Alex Rees
(...)
A maul occurs when a player with the ball goes into contact with a defender, and while both players remain on their feet, at least one more player from the attacking team joins the contact. At this point a maul is formed, and looks sort of like a scrum except with the ball in the player’s hands instead of on the ground.
