2 The popularity Rugby is one of the most popular sports in the UK

4 Basic rules The ball must be passed backwards
The ball may be kicked forward, providing your team mate does not collect it until you are in line with each other or they are behind you You can tackle your opponent with your arms or shoulder and it must be below the neck Basic rules

5 Points The three ways of achieving points are: Tries(5 points)
Conversions (2 points) Drop goals (3 points) Penalty kicks (3 points) Points

6 Gained by placing the ball on the ground beyond the oppositions goal line

7 After each try scored, the team is to take a conversion kick in line with where the try was scored in order to gain a possible extra 2 points The aim is for the player to kick it between the ‘H’ shaped posts Conversions

8 During the game a player may attempt a drop goal which is when the let the ball drop to the ground and as it hits the ground they kick it between the ‘H’ shaped posts It takes a very skilful player to do this as it is difficult when there are opposition players trying to tackle you Drop goals

9 Penalty kicks can be taken when the opposition makes a foul, for example a high tackle
A penalty kick can then be taken from the position where the foul was made They can also make the decision to just keep the ball They will again aim to kick the ball between the ‘H’ shaped posts Penalty kicks
