Rugby - History
Rugby history goes back nearly 200 years in time, namely in 1823 when schoolboy William Webb Elis picked up the ball with their hands during a football match and then "scored." The name had to the sport as a variant of football that included running with the ball in his hands developed at Rugby School in the 1830s.
The first formal rugby rules were set up during the second half of the 1840s, partly to Rugby School, and the University of Cambridge. In 1871, the association also formed the Rugby Football Union.
A significant milestone in rugby history when some twenty clubs broke away from the Rugby Football Union and formed the Rugby Football League. Eventually also developed the Rugby Football League's rules, including by each team could only contain 13 players as opposed to 15 in rugby union.
Even today, the existence of these two variants of rugby in parallel, however, is rugby union far more widespread. Only in the UK, France, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Papua New Guinea rugby league is played on a larger scale. For example, the Rugby World Cup played the variant known as rugby union.
Between 1900 and 1924 there was rugby on the Olympic program. For all rugby fans will delight rugby to make a comeback during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, where twelve teams in both men's and women's will fight for the Olympic title in the Rugby Sevens.
