Rugby

A game played by two teams of 13 or 15 players each on a rectangular field with goal lines and goal posts at either end, the object is to run with an oval ball across the opponent's goal line or kick it through the upper portion of the goal posts, with forward passing and time-outs not permitted.

Famous moves in rugby are the scrum, where packs of opposing players push against each other for possession, and the lineout, where parallel lines of players from each team, arranged perpendicular to the side line in an attempt to catch the ball thrown from the area behind the touch-line.

Rugby was incorporated into the Asian Games in 1998.
