There are three point systems in Rugby, but two ways of scoring in rugby. The first one is to score a try by placing the ball down in the scoring zone, you need to place pressure to be able for it to count, i.e you cannot drop the ball over it. The other way of scoring is by penalty or drop kicking the ball though the posts. After the try if you convert (by kicking the ball through the posts you get an extra two points.

Try=5 points

Conversion=2 points (try must be scored)

Penalty or drop kick=3 points
