Rugby is an intensely physical team sport where players attempt to run, throw, or kick a ball to the opposing teams side. First played in early 19th century England, rugby has since become the second most popular team sport in the world. Each game is played by two teams of 15 players who attempt to pass or kick a ball laterally or backwards without being tackled. After two 40 minute halves, the team that gained the most points from successful tries, goals, and drop goals, wins the game. Despite intense popularity, Rugby has only been played as an Olympic sport four times.
