Why differences in rugby league and rugby union?

There are many differences from rugby league and rugby union. Rugby league is predominantly a running game, each team has possession until they are tackled [taken to the ground] 5 times, after this possession is turned over to the opposition. On the fifth play the team in possession usually kicks for good field position when the opposition attacks, quite like in 'American' Football. In Rugby union there are far more rules and regulations. In union the attacking team stays in possession until they commit a foul, this can be in the form of a knock forward, accidental offside, not realeasing the ball on the ground, coming in from the side, playing the ball on the ground, not staying on your feet in the rook, etc. The defending team may also turn over the ball in a rook or maul or may intercept a pass, providing they are on side. Alternatively the attacking team can kick for good field position or a line-out, line outs are not found in rugby league. Apart from the same positions and player numbers and the basic rule that the ball cannot be passed forward, there are very few similarities between league and union.
