Very popular sport (somewhat like American football.)
A football game in which the ball is kicked or carried forward down a field to score points either by touching the ball down beyond a tryline or kicking the ball through posts. The primary rule governing the game is that no pass to a player forward of the ball is allowed. Two codes of rugby are played, Rugby Union and Rugby League. All information at this site concerns Rugby Union. Union is normally played with fifteen players, but versions of the game featuring only seven or ten players is also popular. Football is quite ancient and has existed in most every cultural group through time. The current form of Rugby Football was first developed at Rugby School in England and thus the school provided the name for the sport.

A long-sleeved knit shirt, often with bold horizontal stripes in two alternating colours, that has a white knit collar and a button-down placket neckline. The sport of rugby was founded in the 1820s at Rugby High School, in England. Some fifty years later, the sport became so popular in private academies and universities that leagues formed, and the development of the shirt with distinctive school colours began to unfold. Today, the rugby is a casual wear staple, offering both men and women this athletic classic for everyday use.
