Wikipedia

  1. Rugby football

    Rugby football is the collective name for the team sports of rugby union and rugby league. Canadian football and, to a lesser extent, American football were once considered forms of rugby football, but are seldom now referred to as such. The governing body of Canadian football, Football Canada, was known as the Canadian Rugby Union as late as 1967, more than fifty years after the sport parted ways with rugby rules.Rugby football started about 1845 at Rugby School in Rugby, Warwickshire, England, although forms of football in which the ball was carried and tossed date to the Middle Ages (see medieval football). Rugby football spread to other English public schools in the 19th century and across the British Empire as former pupils continued to play it. Rugby football split into two codes in 1895, when twenty-one clubs from the North of England left the Rugby Football Union to form the Northern Rugby Football Union (renamed the Rugby Football League in 1922) at the George Hotel, Huddersfield, over payments to players who took time off work to play ("broken-time payments"), thus making rugby league the first code to turn professional and pay players. Rugby union turned professional one hundred years later, following the 1995 Rugby World Cup in South Africa. The respective world governing bodies are World Rugby (rugby union) and the Rugby League International Federation (rugby league).

  1. rugby football

    Rugby football, commonly known as rugby, is a team sport that originated in England in the first half of the 19th century. It's played between two teams of 15 or 7 players each, who carry, kick, or pass a ball across the end line to score points. The sport is known for its physicality, as there is significant contact involved, including tackling the opposing players. Rugby is different from American football, although there are some similarities in terms of gameplay and objectives. Rugby football includes two main types: Rugby Union and Rugby League, each with slightly different rules and gameplay.

    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.
