How does the scoring work in rugby union?

In rugby a player can score points for their team in three ways. They can take the ball into the try zone (endzone) and touch the ball to the ground; this is called a try. A try awarded is worth five points to the scoring team. After the try is awarded the scoring team takes the ball back 22meters from where the try was scored and either drop kicks or kicks from a tee the ball. If the kick passes through the uprights two additional points are awarded. A player may also drop kick the ball at any time in the game and if it goes through the goal three points are awarded. Penalties are also worth 3 points.

How do you make a three point field goal?

If a team feels they cannot score a touchdown within their four downs they'll usually settle for a field goal which is worth 3 points. This is different from the extra point a team kicks after they've scored a touchdown and that field goal is only worth 1 point. If they want to make sure they'll make it they should bring a very good kicker onto the field and hope he doesn't slip or get it blocked.

Why is a Field Goal only worth 3 Points in American Football?

It's valued less than a touchdown because it's an easier score to make. It wasn't always that way.

What is the Football scoring system?

Offensive Scoring: Touchdown - 6 points field goal - 3 points Two point conversion - 2 points Try (extra point) - 1 point Defensive Scoring: Touchdown - 6 points Safety - 2 points Try Safety (only if the ball is fumbled before kick) - 1 point There is also a little-known kick called a "drop-kick" that is worth two points. For this play the player drop-kicking the ball must line up in a standard shotgun formation behind center. The ball is snapped to the kicker and he must, from a standing position, drop the ball from his hands and kick it (like a punt - but without a running start) and it must pass through the uprights prior to hitting the ground. If it is successful, this is worth 2 points.
