Rugby


Rugby Football was supposedly invented during a football game by William Web Ellis at Rugby School in England. The game is a team sport contested with an ovoid ball by two teams of 15 players. The ball is carried in the hand and may be passed backwards or laterally across the pitch or kicked in any direction. The opposing players attempt to halt the ball-carrier by tackling him or her. Points are scored by touching the ball down over the opponents goal line for a try (5 pts), by kicking a penalty or drop goal (3 pts), or by a conversion (2 pts). Rugby is governed by the International Rugby Board, founded in 1886. For more info see Wikipedia.
