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. From then on, rugby grew to be one of the biggest sports in England and the United States of America.
Rugby is an intensive contact sport in which a good rugby system is important to prevent injuries. When talking about rugby, people mostly refer to Rugby Union, which is played in leading countries. Generally speaking, an Edel Grass artificial rugby pitch always consists out of long grass fibers filled with sand and performance infill, built on a shock-absorbing sub-base.
