History Of Rugby Football

OriginsEnglish schoolboy William v-moda earphones Webb Ellis is widely credited with beginning the sport of rugby. Ellis was a student at rugby school in the early 19th century. In 1823 a version of Association Football was being played at the school where Ellis caught the ball and ran with v-moda headphones best buy it. The game permitted handling at the time but running with the ball was not allowed. The Rugby Football History states this concept is up for debate. However, the belief is strong enough for the Rugby World Cup to be named the William Webb Ellis trophy. Others believe rugby is derived from the Irish v-moda headphones white sport of caid, or the ancient Welsh game known as cnapan.

RulesThe laws of the game have evolved over time with rugby, with the game eventually being split into two separated codes, Rugby Union and Rugby League. The first rugby laws were drawn up in 1845 by three senior pupils at rugby school. Many of the laws used in the modern game were in existence with the ball having to be passed backward and a try being awarded for grounding the ball over the opposition goal line. Over time, tackling and scrum laws have been adjusted partly to speed up the game and also with an emphasis on player safety.

World CupBoth codes of the game now have top level international competition, with a World Cup being played every four years. The first Rugby League World Cup was contested in 1954. The Rugby Union World Cup is governed by the International Rugby Board, and has been contested since 1987. The winner is awarded the William Webb Ellis trophy. The 1995 World Cup in South Africa is said to have played a huge role in racial relations within the host nation.
