What is the difference between rugby league and rugby?

Rugby league is the professional code of rugby football, and Rugby is a town in Warwickshire. with a famous public school where the game developed. The main differences between rugby league football and rugby union football is that the principal rugby league teams are professional athletes instead of amateurs (albeit rugby union has some semi-professionals). The focus is more on running with the ball and scoring tries, instead of set pieces and kicking. There is almost no kicking in rugby league. You only have 5 tackles of passing and then you must kick over to other time. In rugby union you can kick to the corners downfield and you can have as many phases as you like when controlling the ball. There is a lot more kicking in the union game. League is really just passing. In league a try is 4 point while unions try is 5

What king of ball do they use in the game of rugby?

A Steeden football is used in Rugby League; a Gilbert football is used in Rugby Union and a Sherrin football is used in Australian Rules Football (AFL).The Steeden football and Gilbert football are almost identical, such that goalkickers from the two rugby codes have had kick offs from different positions on the field, with League winning each time.AFL is the oldest codified and registered game in the world. The Sherrin football is marginally different because AFL is a kicking game with players required to bounce the oval football when running like in basketball, and they "fly" for a mark like in Union but they are usually on their own.
