Sport review

It was invented in 1823 by William Webb Ellis from the Rugby School in England. Ellis, with fine disregard for the rules of football, took the ball with his hands. In fact, the trophy presented to the winners of the Rugby World Cup carries his name.


Rugby sevens is played by two teams of seven players each. The objective is to carry an oval ball towards the opposing team’s line or to pass the ball between two goal posts and a crossbar placed on the same line.
