Rugby Players

Rugby players are the sports persons who play rugby football. Rugby is a style of football that is played with an oval ball that is kicked, carried and passed from hand to hand. There are two types of rugby sports: rugby league and rugby union. The basic tenets of both these games are the same even though there are distinct rules for each of these forms. The game of rugby as a separate style of football evolved during the late 19th century with the formation of the Rugby Football Union (RFU). Both rugby union and rugby league are played at the amateur as well as professional levels. Rugby union is very popular in countries like Australia, Argentina, England, France, New Zealand, etc. while rugby league is more popular in places like the U.S., Russia, Lebanon, Serbia, etc. Rugby players need to train up to five times a week and follow a balanced diet to maintain themselves in great physical shape. Since rugby is a very popular sport, famous players often attain celebrity status. Check out this section to know more about the greatest rugby players of the all times.
