    Might be worth mentioning the rugby thing at the start so they don't get the wrong impression of you.

    I think during interview, find a convenient time just to joke and apologise for the black eye and explain how you did it... But don't force it lol...

    Refer to it in a slightly jovial manner, don't just let it go and pretend they won't notice - point at it and say "It's not what you;re thinking" or something lol - let it lead into a brief mention of rugby and give a quick comment about how you love playing it socially as you love the working as a team aspect, and there is a lot of commitment involved which you hope which you enjoy

    And yes, I am deadly serious.

    I like that, work it in as a joke/relevent banter. Maybe I should get a black eye for all my interviews!!!

    I'd say you'd be grand. Just do as other people've said about making light of it. Tbh I think it might work in your favour - will make you more memorable, you'll stand out more. What's the job?

    Strut in casually, pull up a chair, sit down, look at interviewers, point to your eye and say "What this? No of course I didn't get it from parents unhappy at me spying on their kids. It was rugby".

    Get place at uni, go.
