What is Rugby League?
Rugby League is lightning-fast and full contact rugby. Not for the faint of heart, this brand of rugby ranks among the most physically demanding and punishing sports in the world. Rugby League emphasizes speed and momentum, using a Play-the-Ball system to keep matches fluid.
This is one of the rule changes that represent the philosophy of Rugby League, which split from Rugby Union in 1895 over the lack of payment to players who were forced to miss work to compete. The rules for the League continued to evolve after the split, including the elimination of flankers and line-outs, resulting in a faster, more relentless rugby.
In Rugby League, powerful athletes are locked in combat for two 40-minute halves to accumulate more points than the adversary, utilizing on-the-fly strategy at breakneck speeds to avoid brutal defensive tackling. Grounding the ball in the opponent’s end earns a four-point ‘Try’ with the opportunity to kick for two extra points. Penalty kicks score two points while field goals are worth one point.
