Best Answer

Penalties in Rugby Union include (but are not limited to my recalled list):


playing the ball on the ground

high/dangerous tackling

leaving your feet in a ruck

not throwing the ball in straight in a line-out

feigning a throw in a line-out

using hands to play the ball in a ruck/scrum (unless the player is the scrum half)

forward pass

playing the ball forward with any part of the body other than the player's leg/foot (referred to as a 'knock on')

not releasing the ball upon being tackled

entering a ruck/maul from the side

collapsing a maul

wheeling a scrum

making a play on a player without possession of the ball

shielding the ball after being tackled (no attempt by grounded player to leave ruck)

There are entirely different laws in the sport of Rugby League

Where did rugby start?

Its attributed to William Web Ellis a student of Rugby School, Warwickshire England who in 1823 whilst playing football picked up the, which a the time was allowed in the game of football and instead of retiring back toward his team he ran forward (strictly against the ten rules) toward the opposing teams goal line.
