What is Rugby?

Rugby is a sport from Europe most similar to American football and soccer. This game is still played unlike any other. Rugby is played with 15 players on each team using an oval shaped ball that can only be passed backward or kicked at any time. The purpose of the game is to touch the ball down in the other teams' try zone (most similar to an end zone in football) to score 5 points. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.
