Rugby: A game for hooligans played by gentlemen
Rugby is a game without the glam. hold-outs and infamy of popular professional sports. Instead, rugby is about the comeradery of a team, and being a unit to achieve one goal, every player must have the ability to play every aspect of the game, and they do not seek recognition for it.
The game is composed mainly of ideals used in football and soccer, with a little hockey mixed in. Rugby is a continuous game where a player must try to take the ball down to the try zone (similar to an end zone) for a score. A score, or try, is worth 5 points, and after you get to kick for an extra 2 points. You may also score after a penalty and kick a field goal for 3 points.
