Rugby union is a field game played between two teams of 15 players. The aim of the game is to bring the ball into the opposing team’s end zone to score a goal, called a try. While the players must advance forward, the ball cannot be thrown forward meaning advancement is made by running with the ball or kicking the ball. It is a full contact game.
