The game

Style and Scoring

There are 15 players on each side, with seven substitutions, but two reserved for the pillars and Hooker. Remember, to pass the ball, it must be kicked backwards, but the kicker's teammates must be behind the ball at the time of the kick.

There are four ways of scoring in rugby: 

- Try (five points): the athlete must reach the in-goal zone mark with possession of the ball and touch down, touchdown style.  

- Conversion (two points): a direct kick from anywhere on a line parallel to the sidelines and perpendiculars.

- Drop-goal (three points): ball must touch the ground before being kicked

- Penalty (three points): shot on goal


Yellow: 10 minutes out of the match

Red: expulsion

200 years

Rugby celebrates its 200th anniversary at the World Cup. The sport was born in England in 1823, when William Webb Ellis picked up the ball at a soccer match and ran with it in his hands, breaking the rules of the game.

Rugby World Cup

Organized every four years since 1987, the 2023 Rugby World Cup will be held in France, which previously hosted the tournament in 2007, alongside Wales and Scotland. Despite having two disciplines with 15 and seven players, the World Cup will be played with 15 athletes, with two 40-minute halves. The group stage, which includes 20 teams, runs from September 8 to October 8. 

The third and fourth place play-offs are scheduled for Friday (October 27), while the final will take place on Saturday, October 28. The winning team will lift the Webb Ellis Cup. It is named after former Rugby School pupil William Webb Ellis.

South Africa (Springboks) and New Zealand (All Blacks) have three titles each, while Australia (Wallabies) have two. England are the only world champions from the Northern Hemisphere. South America, meanwhile, has already made history and will have three representatives for the first time: Argentina (Pumas), Uruguay (Teros) and Chile (Condores).
