... it's being played in France, Cocorico! And the Blues, as we'll see below, are not far from being the favorites.

‍

‍

‍

But let's start at the beginning! Rugby is a sport that was born in England in 1823. On the pitch, two teams of 15 players compete for 80 minutes, interspersed with a half in the middle. The match is played on a field of about a hundred meters and the ball has the particularity of being oval.

Their aim is to score more points than their opponent thanks to three possible actions:

‍

‍

‍

‍

‍

‍

‍

‍

The test - 5 points

‍

A try is scored when a player flattens the ball into the opposing end. The end is the area behind the posts. Basically, you have to break through the defense and put the ball in the opponent's camp. An essay earns 5 points.

‍

‍

The transformation - 2 points

‍

For there to be an attempt at transformation, there must be a trial. The transformation is a stopped kick that must pass between the posts and above the crossbar. It's worth 2 points.

‍

‍

‍

The penalty - 3 points

‍

The penalty is a stopped kick caused by a foul by the opponent. When the foul is suffered, the team has the option of opting for a kick attempt where it must pass the ball between the posts. If she succeeds, she earns 3 points.

‍

‍

The drop - 3 points

‍

The drop is also a kick but unlike the transformation or the penalty, it is carried out in full action. If a player considers himself well placed, he can try to send the ball between the posts. Subtlety: he must first bounce the ball off the ground before kicking it. It's 3 points in his pocket if he succeeds.

The 5 words you need to know

To avoid being seen as a service ostrich, it's best to review your vocabulary.

‍

Front/Rear : Roughly speaking, the front ones are the big ones that are growing and the backs are the small ones that run. The forwards are eight, including forming the melee and helping in the rucks. The backs are seven, more at the back of the field, and are more skilled at the foot and faster in the ball in hand.

‍

🧢 Melee ; After a foul, the forwards push shoulder to shoulder and form a kind of shell. The ball is introduced at their feet and the aim is to push harder to follow the ball to start the game.

‍

πŸ‰β†—οΈ Onward: In rugby, you are not allowed to make the ball fall forward or pass forward: otherwise, it's a mess!

‍

πŸ’₯πŸ€• Plating : In defense, a player tackles by catching the opponent to bring him to the ground. Sometimes, the pad turns into a tampon and that hurts!

‍

Ruck : A tackled player must let go of the ball. His teammates can then come and protect the ball. Ruck, that means grouping!
