What is rugby?

Rugby is a form of football that originated in England during the 19th century.

Each team sends 15 players onto the field at a time, and the object of the game is to get the ball behind the opponent's try line.

In rugby, the ball can be played in hand and on the ground.

When the ball is carried in hand, the rules state it can only be thrown or handed off backward.
