"Football is a gentleman’s game played by ruffians, and rugby is a ruffian’s game played by gentlemen." This is an old U.K. saying that describes the feeling about the sport of rugby and its importance in society for that part of the world.
There are a couple of distinctive styles of rugby, rugby league and rugby union. While there are a few differences between the two, some well-known similarities exist. The ball used to play is a large oval one and the ball cannot be passed forward. A team may only advance the ball forward by running or kicking it; passing must be done backwards.
