The intensive team sport

The exact origin of modern rugby is complex. A first form was played in France in the Middle Ages called Soule or Sioule. At the beginning of the 18th century, a kind of football was played at a school in Rugby, Warwhickshire, where points had to be scored by holding the ball under the arm. Rugby was introduced to many schools in England in the 19th century and the sport gained worldwide fame.

Rugby is an intensive contact sport in which a good surface is important to prevent injuries. When talking about rugby, people mostly refer to Rugby Union, which is played in leading countries. Generally speaking, a rugby field always consists out of long grass fibers filled with sand and performance infill, built on a shock-absorbing sub-base.
