Rugby union, commonly known simply as rugby, is a full-contact team sport that originated in England in the first half of the 19th century. One of the two codes of rugby football, it is based on running with the ball in hand. In its most common form, a game is played between two teams of 15 players each, using an oval-shaped ball on a rectangular field called a pitch. The field has H-shaped goalposts at both ends. The rules allow touching the ball with your hands, which determines the main difference between rugby and football. In this case, a restriction is imposed on the play with the hands: the ball cannot be passed by the hands if the receiving player is closer to the opponent’s end zone than the passing one.
