The rugby game is played with hands and feet and an oval ball, between two teams of 15 players each, plus 7 substitutes.

 The rugby game consists of catching or picking up the ball and running with it, passing, throwing or knocking the ball to another player for scoring points, as well as kicking the ball.

To take the ball from the other team, it's also possible to push or shoulder an opponent holding the ball. The specificity of the game is that passes to another team member are always in the back.

 The duration of a rugby game is 40 minutes per half with a half-time of 10 min.
