(5) Rugby (Part 1)

I was never really a Rugby fan until recently.  Perhaps you too have found a new interest in this rugged football sport because of the highly televised 2015 Rugby World Cup being held in England.

By the way, the next Rugby World Cup will be held in Japan in 2019.  The following year, the Olympics will be held in Tokyo.  2019 and 2020 are going to be great memorable years for this country.  The whole world will be watching Japan and of course, many thousands of foreign visitors will be coming here to see both historical events.

Rugby football is a style of football that was developed at Rugby School in Rugby, Warwickshire in England during the mid 19th century.

There are two types of rugby.  One is called the "rugby league" and the other is known as "rugby union".  Though these two forms of rugby share many of the same basics, the two schools gradually developed distinct(different) sets of rules.  The "rugby union" is both a professional sport and amateur.                                         (V.C)
