What is Rugby Union?

Rugby union is a contact sport where aim is to use the ball to score more points than the other team.

You can run with the ball, kick it and pass it, but passing the ball forwards is not allowed.

  • A conversion - two points are added for a successful kick through the goalposts after a try
  • A goal kick - three points are awarded for a penalty kick or drop goal through the posts
