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
