Rugby originated in the United Kingdom, its former name was rugby football. It was shorted for rugby. For its shape liked an olive, we called it "football" in China. Rugby was actually a city in the central England. The rugby school was the birthplace of rugby football. There was a stone tablet in the school, which read" Commemorating the brave action of W. W. Ellis". They said that once in a football match, Ellis, was running with the ball in his arms in a moment of emergency, which was regarded as a mistake in 1823. But it caused the other players to follow. Although this was out of bound, it gave people a new inspiration. In Britain and the commonwealth regions, Football attracted the interests of people who liked doing sports all over the world. Over the years, it was gradually accepted by people. So, a new sport with great importance of exercise and with the advantages in your body's comprehensive development, derived from the football.
Rugby gradually developed at Cambridge University after 1839 and established the rugby football club one after another. The intercollegiate games also became very active. In 1871, ...
... UK established the Football Association, which made rugby spread quickly to other areas, such as European countries, the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. In 1886, the International Football Federation was established. In 1906, the International Football competition was held in France.
When the British football transmitted to other countries, it changed constantly. Different forms of rugby also created by many other countries, like the United States, Canada and Australia. But the venue, equipment, rules, clothing, participate numbers and the ball's size, as well as the competition methods were all different. It could be, roughly, sorted into two kinds; British Football (also called soft football) and American football (also called the hard football). Its different styles and play methods won themselves the interesting nicknames. and American football was called "A barbarian plays the savage sport".
The Football players didn't wear guards. They chiefly used the clothes of football players, so, it was called the unbreakable football. Rugby was a little bigger than American football, so the ball could not be as with no trouble passed as the ball in American.
Rugby could present the military training with much assistance, intensely in physical training. Because rugby game required the team spirit of tenaciously combat to win. Therefore, this sport was greatly extended in the army with its popularity. As a result, rugby got the fame of "ball of army" in western countries. Nowadays, some of the individual universities also have their good rugby teams in China.
In people's point of view, rugby was a violent sport. By contrast, rugby has more intense collision than other sports, such as basketball, soccer and the popular sports in the United States. Instead of the prohibited grapping-rugby style, to play the ball with both hands is a better choice in the campuses of American. Most PE classes all use the type of hands-touch. But after school, they can play the grapping method under the circumstances of equipment and guidance. In addition, the intense body collision and high risk would put pressure on women, so it is unable to attract women. In shortage of muscles and weights, women always have a high risk in competions. The balls which need grip give the strong and quick players more advantages. The various factors we discussed above has risen disputes and has made rugby as an violence movement with dodge ball, wresting, hockey and boxing over the past decades.
