Where does rugby come from? (Part 1)

Rugby is a two-team team sport that competes with an oval on the grass played in English schools throughout the 19th century.

Rugby is divided into two categories: Rugby League and Rugby Union.

In Rugby Union, each team will have 15 people, the ball weighs 382 – 425 grams, leather and soccer field with dimensions of 95 – 100 m long and 65 – 68 m wide. At the end of the yard, there is an H-shaped goal frame of 3.5 – 6.1 m high, 5.65 m wide, 3 m high crossbar. The goal of this sport is to bring the ball to the backyard of the goal line or shoot The ball hits the opponent’s goal to score a point. If the ball is brought to the back of the goal line, 5 points will be awarded and the team then has the right to shoot the ball into the bar to receive an additional 2 points. 3 points will be awarded for kicking (direct kick or free kick) flying over the goal above the bar. Unlike football, rugby players use both hands and feet. If passing by hand, the player may only pass backwards. If by foot, the player is passed in all directions.

In the Rugby League, each team has 3 people, playing the ball and the field like Union. However, the rugby league only allows 6 players to be wrestled down to make points. If after 6 times the team has not made a goal, the ball is transferred to the side. In addition, kicking on the direct beam will only be 1 instead of 3 as Union and the penalty will be 2 points. The player has to take the ball to the back of the court to get 4 and 2 chances instead of 5 and 2 points chance.

Rugby was born in Rugby City, Warwickshire, England in 1823. The International Amateur Rugby League (abbreviated FIRA in French Fédération Internationale de Rugby Amateur, English name Association of European Rugby) was founded in 1934. FIRA, the unofficial world championship, has been held since 1960.
