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.

Did the same person come up with soccer football and rugby?

Football was invented in 1863 in England. The football association was created to organise football in England and other countries were encouraged to have their own football associations.No. Firstly, it's not called 'soccer football'.Football is a popular game which originated from the inter-village sport of 'mob-football'.Football was played at Rugby School, where the rules were adapted to form a new form of football known as "Rugby's Football".Now known as Rugby Football or simply Rugby.Therefore the same person did not invent both football and rugby.ANSWERNo. Soccer and rugby actually evolved from the same type of game. Some clubs emphasized the feet, and other emphasized the hands. When attempts were made to standardize the rules, clubs who emphasized use of the feet founded the Football Association and went on to form what we know as soccer, or association football. Clubs who preferred ball-handling techniques formed the Rugby Football Union, named after Rugby School, where the handling game was popular.
