Rugby is a demanding contact sport with diverse positions. There are many variations such as Union, 7s, 12s, League. However the most common variation is rugby union. Rugby union is played with 15 players per team on the field, the first 8 are called forwards and participate in set plays such as scrums and line-outs. They are typically the bigger players in the teams. The other 7 are called back and are typically the ones running the ball across the field and making complex plays that include passes and runs. What is expected of a player depends on his category (forward/back) and on his position in his category. The position is also typically linked to the number on the jersey. It is also important to mention that all players take part in both the offence and the defence.
The games concept is simple.
Gain possession of the ball, passing of the ball across field in line with the ball carrier or behind the ball carrier to a team member so that the ball is taken to the in goal area of the opposing team. The ball must then be placed on the ground in the "in goal area" (the goal line constitutes the goal area) with hand pressure to gain a try, the name of the score. There after the scoring team may attempt to kick the ball over the cross bar (between the up right posts) of the opposing teams goal posts to "convert " a try and add points to the score. Penalty goals can be awarded where the team award the penalty can kick the ball if possible over the posts of the opposing team to gain more points. If in possession of the ball an attacking team player may attempt a drop goal score. This is where the ball is dropped to the floor and as it hits the floor it is kicked over the opposing teams posts.
Legal catch the ball run toward the opponents try line and using downward hand pressure on the ball score a try this is followed by a conversation
else with ball in hand you drop kick a goal over the opponents cross bar and between its up rights
