  1. Rugby football

    Rugby football is a style of football that refers to two current sports, rugby league and rugby union. Although the two distinctively different forms of rugby – rugby union and rugby league - share the same basic rules of the game, that is, getting the ball over the line to score a try, the rules for each of the forms, are different. Rugby football developed from a version of football played at Rugby School and was one of several versions of football played at English public schools during the 19th century.
