You can score different numbers of points depending on what you do in the game.
Try – 5 points – A try is scored when the ball is grounded over the opponents’ goal line in the in-goal area. A penalty try can be awarded if a player would have scored a try but for foul play by the opposition.
Conversion – 2 points – After scoring a try, that team can attempt to add two further points by kicking the ball over the crossbar and between the posts from a place in line with where the try was scored.
Penalty – 3 points – When awarded a penalty after an infringement by the opposition, a team may choose to kick at goal.
Drop goal – 3 points – A drop goal is scored when a player kicks for goal in open play by dropping the ball onto the ground and kicking it on the half-volley.
A rugby pitch should be between 94-100 metres long, and between 68-70 metres wide. The length is from try line to try line, and does not include the dead ball area beyond the try line, which can be 10-22 metres deep.
A scrum is packs of opposing players pushing against each other for possession, and the line-out, where parallel lines of players from each team, arranged perpendicular to the touch-line (the side line) attempt to catch the ball thrown from touch (the area behind the touch-line).
Legend has it that in 1823, during a game of school football in the town of Rugby, England, a young man named William Webb Ellis picked up the ball and ran towards the opposition’s goal line. Two centuries later, Rugby Football has evolved into one of the world’s most popular sports, with millions of people playing, watching and enjoying the Game. At the heart of Rugby is a unique ethos which it has retained over the years. Not only is the Game played to the Laws, but within the spirit of the Laws. Through discipline, control and mutual self-respect, a fellowship and sense of fair play are forged, defining Rugby as the Game it is.
