What is a try in rugby?

in rugby a try is the equivalent to a touchdown in American football. you do however, have to literraly touch the ball to the ground on the goal line or in the "in goal" area to be awarded a try. However, in both rugby league and in rugby union, if the referee believes that a try has been prevented by the defending team's misconduct, they may award the attacking team a penalty try. Penalty tries are always awarded under the posts regardless of where the offence took place. In rugby union, the standard applied by the referee is that a try "probably" would have been scored. The referee does not have to be certain a try would have been scored. In rugby league, the referee "may award a penalty try if, in his opinion, a try would have been scored but for the unfair play of the defending team 1 try=5 points in the Union code and 4 points in the league code.
