September 28, 2011: Rugby is a very misunderstood sport. The attached video may or may not help clarify the basic rules. Men may have to watch with their eyes closed (SURE!).
The “history” of the sport, though not as picturesque as the rules, is almost mythical. Rugby football is a style of football that supposedly originated at Rugby School, located in the town of Rugby, Warwickshire, in the United Kingdom. It developed from one of several different versions of football played at English public schools during the 19th century.
As legend has it, the game of football (Rugby) was played at Rugby School between 1750 and 1859. It permitted handling of the ball, but no one was allowed to run with it in their hands towards the opposition’s goal. Also, there was no fixed limit to the number of players per side. Thus at times there were hundreds taking part in a “rolling maul” (after a ball). Needless to say, this sport causes major injuries. The innovation of running with the ball was introduced sometime between 1859 and 1865. One of many popular myths of the sport’s origin tells of Rugby pupil William Webb Ellis. He broke the local rules by running forward with the ball in his hands in a game in 1823. Rugby School produced the first written rules for their version of the sport in 1845.
