What is a rugby league vs. a rugby union?

I love rugby.


Answer by  Binome (1975)

Rugby union has 15 players. Rugby league has 13. The scrum is more important in union. There are no flankers in league. In league, if a team fails to score after six tackles, it loses possession. In union, after the tackle, possession is contested after a tackle: either a ruck or a maul can occur.

Simply, rugby leagues differ from rugby unions in that leagues are generally easier to follow than unions. Rugby unions still allow older actions such as ball contesting after a tackle and as a result, there are more stoppages during game play.


Answer by  abcdefg (12)

The difference between a rugby league and a rugby union are not that big. The only difference is this one thing. A rugby league is a team of consisting thirteen rugby players. However, a rugby union is a rugby team consisting of fifteen players. So basicly, the only difference between a rugby union and league is the amount of players.
