Distinctive features common to both Rugby codes (league and union) include the prolate spheroid ball and the ban on passing the ball forward, so that players can gain ground only by running with the ball or by kicking it. As the sport of rugby league moved further away from its union counterpart, rule changes were implemented with the aim of making a faster-paced, more try-oriented game, in the hope of increasing attendances at games.
Today, the main differences between the two games, besides league having teams of 13 players and union of 15, involve the tackle and its aftermath:
Set pieces of the union code include the scrum, where packs of opposing players push against each other for possession, and the lineout, where parallel lines of players from each team, arranged perpendicular to the touch-line (the side line) attempt to catch the ball thrown from touch (the area behind the touch-line).
In the league code, the scrum still exists, but with greatly reduced importance. Set pieces are generally started from the play-the-ball situation. Many of the rugby league positions have similar names and requirements to rugby union positions but there are no flankers in rugby league. The result of these variations have led to rugby union being considered a traditional form of rugby.
Its like football but without pads and you use a soccer type ball.
Another way is too
1. Sprint on a right or left angle
2. The takler will then sprint at you on an angle putting his body weight on the angle he is running.
3. Put weight on your right side.
4.Put your right foot down and push of it while shifting your weight to the other side quickly.
5. The takler will be too slow to change direction and you wouldv'e beat him.
Chair contact is allowed in this sport. However, colliding (tackling) behind the rear wheel is an offence reulting in a penalty. Ripping the ball from the carrier is alllowed but ball carrying may not last longer than 10 second
You grab the guy with the ball around the legs while he is running and if he falls over or stops you have tackled him
the pass are laterals left or right sides as well as backwards.
By standing in a position upfield from where a tackle has taken place.
