Rugby is played on a field by two teams of 15 people. Points are gained through scoring tries or kicking goals. At each end of the playing field there is a field goal made out of poles, shaped like the letter “H”. There is also an area called the in-goal. A goal is scored when a player kicks the ball through the top of the “H” of the other team’s goal or a player can score a try if he manages to touch the ball to the ground on or beyond the other team’s in-goal. Distinctive features to rugby include the oval ball and that throwing the ball forward is not allowed, so that players can gain ground only by running with the ball or by kicking it. The objective of the rugby game is to obtain more points than the opposing team within 80 minutes of playing time.
