England is known to be a country that is quite passionate on the sports it plays in. Among them, football and rugby are the two most famous sports that draws the attention of all English people, especially when tournaments and events are in season.
Rugby is somehow similar to football where a player would have to go through a gauntlet of players to bring a ball and run from one part of the field to another. Rugby is rough in the sense that tackles and rough play are encountered in it. The objective is to stop an offense from running and penetrating and this includes trying to bring down the player at all costs.
Rugby was believed to be discovered when an Englishman, William Web Ellis, picked up a ball and ran with it during a football match. Rugby union is a sport that is quite famous team sport throughout England and annual competitions such as the Guinness Premiership and Heineken Cup are held.
