Rugby is an Olympic contact team sport in which the goal is to perform effective actions, namely hitting the opponent’s goal or bringing the ball into the opponent’s end zone. Unlike football, touching the ball with the hands is allowed in rugby.
Global regulation of rugby is carried out by the International Rugby Board (IRB), the headquarters of the organization is located in Dublin.
A modern rugby match was first held in the English city of Rugby in 1823 (hence the name). In the International Amateur Rugby Federation FIRA, founded in 1934. In the program of the Olympic Games 1900, 1908, 1920-1924. FIRA Cup (unofficial world championship) – since 1960. A variety of rugby – rugby 7 – was included as an demonstration sport in the program of the Sydney Olympics (2000).
The Five Nations Tournament is a rugby competition between England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales and France. Established in 1910, revived in 1947 after World War II. Held in England.
The World Cup for national teams was approved by the Congress of International Rugby Federations in 1986. In 1987 (Australia) – the winner is New Zealand; 1991 (Ireland) – winner Australia; 1995 (South Africa) – winner of South Africa; 1999 (Great Britain, France) – winner Australia.
The history of the emergence and development of rugby
Webb Ellis is considered to be the ancestor of rugby, being a student of one of the schools in the city of Rugby (England), during a football match he grabbed the ball with his hands and rushed to the opponent’s end zone. At that time, there were several varieties of football, and the rules of that match allowed touching the ball with the hand, but moving with the ball was not allowed. It is worth noting that this hypothesis has no evidence, but it is rooted in rugby culture, and Webb Ellis has become one of the symbols of the game.
In 1845, the first attempt was made by students to formulate the rules of rugby, and in 1848, students at Cambridge University issued their own set of rules, which began to be used as a regulation for subsequent matches.
In 1863, the first rugby club “Blackheath” (Blackheath) appeared; it consisted of members of the English Football Association and everyone could join it. In 1871 the Rugby Union of England was formed. The game itself at that time was called “Rugby Football”.
At the end of the 19th century, a split occurred in the English rugby community. This came as some clubs in the northern part of the country were actively pursuing their right to pay players cash compensation, as many players were forced to miss work due to matches. While the game had an amateur status, and, therefore, no payments could be made. The result of the confrontation was the exit of some teams from the union, their modification of the rules of rugby and the formation on this basis of a new game – rugby league.
On March 27, 1871, the first internationally recognized match took place between England and Scotland. Later, their teams appeared in Ireland and Wales, and with them the Home Nations Cup appeared. In 1888 the British Isles team visited Australia and New Zealand.
In 1886, the International Rugby Board (IRB) was created, which became truly global only towards the end of the 20th century.
Since 1905, a number of tours have been held by the strongest rugby teams in the United States and European countries. Since 1987, the Rugby World Cups have started, and the geography of the game has expanded significantly. The team from New Zealand became the first winner of the world championship.
In 1995, it was decided to give rugby a “free” status and abolish restrictions on the wages of athletes.
Rugby rules (briefly)
Let’s talk briefly about the rules of rugby. A rugby match consists of two halves of 40 minutes each with a break of 5-10 minutes. After the break, the teams must change goals. If at the end of the match the score is equal, then extra time is assigned – 2 halves of 10 minutes.
From each team, 15 people simultaneously act on the field, of which 8 are attackers and 7 defenders. Based on the results of the draw, the team that will put the ball into play first is determined. The ball is put into play with a kick. Points in rugby are awarded for performing effective actions:
- Try – 5 points, which are awarded after the player of the attacking team brings the ball into the end zone. The player who brought the ball into the end zone must necessarily touch the ground with it.
- Penalty try – 5 points, which are awarded if the attempt failed due to rough play by the opponent. Penalty try is counted as brought in the center of the gate, which makes it easy to implement it.
- Implementation – 2 points, which are awarded after the ball hits the opponent’s goal. The ball must pass between the two posts over the crossbar. The opportunity to execute the implementation is given after the successful implementation of the attempt.
- Free kick – 3 points. For some violations of the rules, the match referee may award a penalty kick. The blow is made from the place of violation of the rules.
- Drop goal – 3 points awarded for a field goal, the player must drop the ball on the field and kick it after touching the ground – hand shots are not allowed.
The winner of a rugby match is the team with more points than the opponent.
The rules of the game do not allow forward play. In other words, most of the actions that result in the ball being passed to a player closer to the opponent’s end zone are prohibited. In addition, it is prohibited:
- a player running after the ball to attack or push other players;
- an offside player to intentionally interfere with a player in possession of the ball;
- any player in possession of the ball after it has left the scrimmage, ruck, maul or lineout to try to force his way through the forward teammates;
- strike an opponent with a hand;
- cling from behind or kick the legs of an opponent, trip him or step on a lying opponent;
- attack or block an opponent who has just kicked the ball and is not running after the ball;
- hold, push, attack, block or tackle an opponent who is not in possession of the ball, except in a ruck, maul or scrum.
