The history of Rugby
Rugby has recently risen to become a popular sport in many countries, with clubs and national teams found in places as diverse as Japan, Cote d’Ivoire, Georgia, Uruguay and Spain. Even women’s rugby is considered to be one of the fastest growing sports in the world. At the turn of the 21st century, the International Rugby Board (IRB) boasted more than 100 affiliated national unions, although the top level of the sport continues to be dominated by the traditional rugby nations of Australia, England, France, Ireland, Scotland, South Africa, New Zealand and Wales.

Rugby itself is played with an oval ball by two teams of 15 players or 13 players depending on which form of the game you’re interested in (Rugby Union or Rugby League). It is a physically demanding game and its creation is often attributed to William Webb Ellis, who reportedly defied convention by picking up a football and running with it. While Ellis definitely went to Rugby School in England, the actual event may have never taken place. Nevertheless, Rugby School, whose name has been given to the sport, was pivotal in the development of the game and the first rules were established there in 1845.
The modern age of rugby gives fans all sorts of competitions to bet on. Whether it’s on international competitions like the Tri-Nations or the 6 Nations, or club competitions like Super Rugby, there’s always something for fans to enjoy. You can even place bets on Sevens Rugby, a shortened and exciting form of the game.
