Rugby

Rugby is a free-flowing game that features a combination of strength, speed, and strategy to move a ball into an opponents territory. Rugby has developed to include many different forms of the game: touch, union, league, seven-a-side and has evolved from football (i.e. soccer) often labelled the ‘game played in heaven’.
