International rugby as a sport has been a part of the sports landscape for well over a century. It all began in the first half of 1820's. The sport then began to generate some following and that paved the way for its first laws to be jotted down in the year 1845. For the most part of that decade the sport was governed and looked after by a single body.
All that however changed in 1895 when some of the most prominent clubs of the time decided to go their own way. That resulted in the formation of a new league now known as the "Rugby League." The idea behind the clubs splitting up was that they wanted rugby to make the jump from amateur to the professional level. They also wanted the players to be properly compensated so that their future is secured. The already existing governing body, "Rugby Union" didn't agree to that and that is the reason why the sport is now run by these two organizations today.
Whereas the main objective of International rugby is the same for both leagues, scoring a touchdown, the rules have been tweaked to make it more competitive and interesting. Rugby League rules are focused on making the game fast paced and have thirteen players on each side, two less than Rugby Union teams. Union style focuses on the retention of the ball. The distance between the posts is the same in both styles which is one hundred yards.
The dimensions of the playing field vary. In Rugby League style of play the players can only use their shoulders to stop an attacking player from the opposing team whereas in Rugby Union the rules allow to pull and grab the advancing player to stop him. Six tackles are all that are allowed in the league style of play to take possession of the ball.
Four points are awarded for a try, two for a penalty goal and a single point if a team scored a drop goal in Rugby League. Rugby Union gives five points for a try and a drop and a penalty goal earns a team three points each for their efforts.
International rugby is now a global phenomenon that has become the heartbeat of millions around the globe. It is all about scoring touchdowns to put more points on the board than your opposition whether it is a Rugby Union game or the Rugby League match.
