Over het boek
Since William Webb Ellis reputedly in 1823 caught and ran with the ball during a game of association football at Rugby School, Warwickshire, rugby has grown into a huge global sport. Despite the anecdotal nature of the sport's origin, the Rugby World Cup trophy is named after him.
Rugby union, often referred to simply as rugby, is a full contact team sport. It is based on running with the ball in hand. In its most common form a game is between two teams of 15 players using an oval-shaped ball on a field with
H-shaped goalposts on each goal line.
