A team sport played with an oval-shaped ball in which players may use their hands and feet. Matches are contested between two teams of fifteen, thirteen, or seven players on a large, rectangular field, either indoors or outdoors. Each team attempts to score more points than the opposition by touching the ball down in the opposing team’s dead-ball area (a try) or by kicking it through two goal posts, above the crossbar (a conversion, penalty kick, or drop goal). The team that scores the most points wins the match.
