everyone have different awnsers Ill say rugby league or union is MUCH better than football (soccer). Soccer for me, is a game where it's basically all acting, if they want to dive everywhere on the field, go join a marital art or tap-dancing or something. Rugby players share blood,sweat and tears during every game. Rugby League players often play on the field with broken bones or jaws. Soccer, if they see a drop of blood, they start dancing off the field, bunch of girls.
When the rugby league was created they were originally union members. However, due to the issues of payment and union wanting to keep the game armature the Rugby League was founded by a breakaway group in North England They immediately reworked that game and dropped the 2 flankers so that there were 13 players per side.
There is a Rugby League game on PSP called "Rugby League Challenge."
In the league code there are 13 player. The positions of the wing forward (flanker) has been removed from the game
Rugby League was established in Huddersfield, Yorkshire in August 1895.The game came about following a long and acrimonious dispute about entitlement to pay for players ( mostly working class players) for lost wages whilst away from work.The failure of the rugby establishment to even discuss the matter led to the split and the formation of the Northern Rugby Union, which then became known as the Rugby League.
In the union code 15 players on each team (plus substitutes). This totals no more than thirty players on the field at any point during the game from both side. If there are more than 15 players from one team on the field, it is a penalty. In the League code there are 13 players plus subs for each team. No more than 26 may be on the field at anyone time. In this code the wing fowards (flankers) are not used. In a severns team as the name infers only 7 a side for each team may be on the fieled of play at anyone time.
In the Union game there are 15 players perside and 5 subs and in the League code there are 13 players perside and 4 subs
15 on each team + subs so 22 in totalRugby Union:15 on the field (Playing), 7 on the bench (Used as Substitutes), 8 in reserves (Not Allowed for Play) This is the kind of rugby most people associate with the sport. Rugby League: 13 on the field + 4 substitutes. Rugby Sevens: 7 on the field. Shorter games.
