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.

How long is a rugby match?


There are two 40-minute halves that equal out to 80 minutes of playing time. Time is also affected on whether the match goes into extra time in knockout stages if so, there are two extra time periods that last 10 minutes each.

What is a scrum in rugby?


A scrum is a form of restarting play in rugby. It involving players jumping on each other and interlocking arms and head to fighting for possession of the ball when the ball is lost and neither team has possession.

How do you play rugby?

Two teams of 15 players each fight for possession of the ball to score into the opposing endzone by carrying, passing, or kicking the ball. The match is started off with a kickoff and the receiving team can score to get five points.

Rugby Pitch - Union
Drawing of a Union Rugby Pitch compared to other similar sports fields

The Union Rugby Pitch is the Olympic-sized rectangular grass field defined by the area of play and in-goal areas in a Union Rugby match. Union Rugby Pitches are differentiated from League Rugby by a larger field of play and the designation of the 22m line. The general area of play is located between the goal lines and the touchlines, and is where much of the game occurs. The in-goal areas are between the goal line and the dead ball line, and contain the goal posts. Along the field are distance markers to signify distances along the field. Players can score a try by placing the ball inside the in-goal area, and score a goal by aiming the ball through the opposing goal posts.

Union Rugby Pitches have an overall length between 347.77’-472.44’ (106-144 m) and width of 223.1’-229.66’ (68-70 m) for a total area of 77,586-108,500 ft² (7208-10080 m²). The area of play between the Try-Lines is 328’ (100 m) with In-Goal Areas varying from 19.69’-72.18’ (6-22 m). The Union Rugby Pitch is marked with 10m and 22m lines with two sets of broken distance lines at 16.4' and 49.21' (5 and 15 m) from the touch lines.

Rugby Pitch - League
Group of scaled illustrations of various sports fields compared to the League Rugby Pitch

The League Rugby Pitch is a rectangular grass field defined by the area of play and in-goal areas in a League Rugby match. League Rugby Pitches are differentiated from Union Rugby by a smaller field of play and the regular repetition of 10m lines across the field of play. The general area of play is located between the goal lines and the touchlines, and is where much of the game occurs. The in-goal areas are between the goal line and the dead ball line, and contain the goal posts. Along the field are distance markers to signify distances along the field. Players can score a try by placing the ball inside the in-goal area, and score a goal by aiming the ball through the opposing goal posts.

League Rugby Pitches have an overall length between 367.5’-400.25’ (112-122 m) and width of 223’ (68 m) for a total area of 81,978-89,297 ft² (7616-8296 m²). The area of play between the Try-Lines is 328’ (100 m) with In-Goal Areas varying from 19.69’-36.09’ (6-11 m). The League Rugby Pitch is marked every 32.8’ (10 m) with broken distance lines 32.8’ (10 m) from the touch lines.

Rugby Ball
Scaled comparison drawings of the Rugby Ball and other sports balls

A Rugby Ball is used to play Rugby and is passed through players with purpose of scoring a goal. Regulations for the Rugby Ball are set by the World Rugby and Rugby League International Federation. Historically Rugby Balls were constructed from pig’s bladder.

Currently, Rugby Balls are made from synthetics that are weatherproof and allow the game to be consistent. A Rugby Ball is elongated in the form of an ellipse, has bumps to provide better grip, and has 4 panels. There are 4 different Rugby Ball sizes used by different age groups. Rugby Balls are available in different colors and designs on them.

Rugby Balls have a short diameter of 7.27”-7.77” (18.46-19.74 cm) and length of 11”-12” (28-30 cm), resulting in circumferences of 22.83”-24.41” (58-62 cm) on the short side and 29.13”-30.31” (74-77 cm) across the length. The mass of a Rugby Ball is between 14-16 oz (400-450 g) with a pressure between 9.5-10 psi (65.7-68.8 kPa).
