EQUIPMENT – FIELD
Rugby is played on a field, called a pitch, that is longer and wider than a football field. A typical pitch is 100 meters long and 70 meters wide.
Any player can carry, pass or kick the ball.
The ball may be passed to any other player. However, it may only be passed laterally or backward, never forward.
There are four ways for a team to score points:
Try: Five points
Conversion: Following a try, two points
Penalty Kick: Three points
Drop Goal: Three points
