contact is when you touch the player with the ball, you knock the ball out of the players hands, or shove a player out of your way to get past them

Is rugby better than netball why?

Well its depends really, if you are a girl then definitely netball but if you were a boy then probably rugby.

This probably doesn't help but that's my opinion.
