Rugby

Sport Overview

In rugby, two teams fight over an oval ball and try to score points by taking the ball over the opponent’s goal line. Unlike other ball games, rugby involves tackles and other forms of physical contact, making it a very intense and exciting sport.

Players can run while holding the ball, kick it, and throw it to another player. However, the ball can only be thrown to another member of the team in the backwards direction.
