Do you know why your handegg sport did not use any pads and helmets? Because it originated from a sport named Rugby Football, a kind of mix between the two. Gradually, it evolved into the sport that it is now, and Yanks dropped the "Rugby" in Rugby Football to make it easier.

The fact that the helmet can be used offensively doesn't change the fact that it is also for defence. People hit harder knowing that their opponent is well-protected. Now imagine you playing rowdy-tough Murican handegg without your precious armor. Rugby is a more dangerous sport.
