The original variation of the sport, Rugby Union games are played in more than 100 countries around the world. Naturally, New Zealanders are very proud of their incredible All Blacks squad, however there are also national teams in China, South Africa, Australia and France, to name just a few countries.
The game originated in England, and consists of 2 40-minute halves. Depending on the specific event and league, there are 13 to 15 teammates on the field. The volatile nature of the sport, and the fast pace of the matches, mean anything can happen during play. For that reason, live sports betting has become especially popular.
Points are scored with Tries, where players are able to ground the ball in the in-goal area. These earn 5 points, as do the Penalty Tries that are awarded by the referee when a Try would have been scored if an opponent’s foul play had not interfered. After a Try or a Penalty, teams are allowed to attempt a Conversion (kicking the ball over the goalposts) to score 2 extra points.
