What's the point?
A game of rugby union has two periods of 40 minutes each. Between the two halves, there is a maximum 10-minute interval, after which both teams change ends.
There are 15 players on a side at a time, with up to 7 subs available
to play at any time. Much like in soccer, once a player is subbed off that
player is no longer allowed to come back on.
Scrums involve the player's numbered 1-8 and are used for restarting
play after the following:
Not every player can join a scrum. Only eight players from each team can take part. They are almost always the eight forwards in the side.The scrum is formed at the place where the infringement happened. All scrums must take place at least five meters from the touch or trylines. However the scrum is one of the hardest areas of the game to referee because of the many infringements, particularly in the front row. Scrums are initiated by a cadence from the referee: "CROUCH, BIND, SET"
