It isn't. People think it is because when the people show the football pitch, it looks bigger. When it's the rugby pitch they show it at the side so it looks smaller than a football pitch. From :)
There is hardly any sport which is bigger than Soccer. It is the most played and popular game on the planet. Rugby cannot compete with its huge popularity.
= What is the difference between rugby and soccer? =
It was formed from soccer in the school of rugby in rugby England.
No, rugby was invented during a game of soccer or as i say it football.
They are related in the foundations of the two sports. American football is derived from the sport Rugby. Both Rugby and Soccer are related as there was a disagreement on the set of rules which was going to be created (around 1863). This led to a split in the original committee into the Football Assosiation (otherwise better known as FA) and the Rugby Football Union (known as RFU). Apart from the origins of the sports, they share few relations, the most prominent being the pitch.. The Pitch for soccer, American Football and Rugby are the same size.
A rugby pitch shall be no longer than 100 meters by 70 meters wide A Gaelic football pitch is Length - 130m minimum and 145 maximum Width - 80m minimum and 90 maximum
They are nothing alike. Rugby is full on tackle and soccer is very little contact.
no such thing. - The equivalent kick in soccer and rugby would be the placed penalty kick.
Rugby and Soccer are alike because they consist of using a circular ball to score
