FAQs

WHAT IS RUGBY UNION?

Rugby Union is similar in some respects to soccer and American football. It is played by two teams of 15 players on a field about 160 yds (150 m) long and 75 yds (70 m) wide, with goal lines 110 yds (100 m) apart and two in-goals (corresponding to football's end zones). The ball may be kicked, carried, or passed (to the sides or rear); tackling is permitted, but blocking is forbidden. Scoring is by carrying the ball into the in-goal or by kicking it between the goal posts.
