The following is a list of international rugby union teams :. The sport's international governing body, World Rugby formerly the International Rugby Board , organises its member unions into three tiers.
Starting in , in addition to the existing tier system, the IRB introduced a four-band system of classification in which unions and, by extension, teams are classified based on "their development status and record on the international stage".
The new structure is: . Again, the IRB did not release a list of unions in this category, but named several as being in this band:.
In the knockout stages of rugby competitions, most notably the Rugby World Cup , two extra time periods of 10 minutes periods are played with an interval of 5 minutes in between if the game is tied after full-time.
If scores are level after minutes then the rules call for 20 minutes of sudden-death extra time to be played. If the sudden-death extra time period results in no scoring a kicking competition is used to determine the winner.
However, no match in the history of the Rugby World Cup has ever gone past minutes into a sudden-death extra time period.
Forward passing throwing the ball ahead to another player is not allowed; the ball can be passed laterally or backwards.
Only the player with the ball may be tackled or rucked. A "knock-on" is committed when a player knocks the ball forward, and play is restarted with a scrum.
Any player may kick the ball forward in an attempt to gain territory. When a player anywhere in the playing area kicks indirectly into touch so that the ball first bounces in the field of play, the throw-in is taken where the ball went into touch.
The aim of the defending side is to stop the player with the ball, either by bringing them to ground a tackle, which is frequently followed by a ruck or by contesting for possession with the ball-carrier on their feet a maul.
Such a circumstance is called a breakdown and each is governed by a specific law. A player may tackle an opposing player who has the ball by holding them while bringing them to ground.
Tacklers cannot tackle above the shoulder the neck and head are out of bounds ,  and the tackler has to attempt to wrap their arms around the player being tackled to complete the tackle.
It is illegal to push, shoulder-charge, or to trip a player using feet or legs, but hands may be used this being referred to as a tap-tackle or ankle-tap.
Mauls occur after a player with the ball has come into contact with an opponent but the handler remains on his feet; once any combination of at least three players have bound themselves a maul has been set.
When the ball leaves the side of the field, a line-out is awarded against the team which last touched the ball.
Both sides compete for the ball and players may lift their teammates. A scrum is a way of restarting the game safely and fairly after a minor infringement.
A team may also opt for a scrum if awarded a penalty. A scrum is formed by the eight forwards from each team crouching down and binding together in three rows, before interlocking with the opposing team.
The second row consists of two locks and the two flankers. Behind the second row is the number 8. This formation is known as the 3—4—1 formation.
There are three match officials: a referee, and two assistant referees. The referees are commonly addressed as "Sir". Common offences include tackling above the shoulders, collapsing a scrum , ruck or maul, not releasing the ball when on the ground, or being offside.
Occasionally, infringements are not caught by the referee during the match and these may be "cited" by the citing commissioner after the match and have punishments usually suspension for a number of weeks imposed on the infringing player.
During the match, players may be replaced for injury or substituted for tactical reasons. Prior to , all substitutions, no matter the cause, counted against the limit during a match.
In , World Rugby changed the law so that substitutions made to replace a player deemed unable to continue due to foul play by the opposition would no longer count against the match limit.
The most basic items of equipment for a game of rugby union are the ball itself, a rugby shirt also known as a "jersey" , rugby shorts , socks, and boots.
The rugby ball is oval in shape technically a prolate spheroid , and is made up of four panels. The studs may be either metal or plastic but must not have any sharp edges or ridges.
Protective equipment is optional and strictly regulated. The most common items are mouthguards , which are worn by almost all players, and are compulsory in some rugby-playing nations.
Female players may also wear chest pads. It is the responsibility of the match officials to check players' clothing and equipment before a game to ensure that it conforms to the laws of the game.
The international governing body of rugby union and associated games such as sevens is World Rugby WR. Six regional associations, which are members of WR, form the next level of administration; these are:.
National unions oversee rugby union within individual countries and are affiliated to WR. Since , the WR Council has 40 seats.
In addition, the six regional associations have two seats each. The earliest countries to adopt rugby union were England , the country of inception, and the other three Home Nations, Scotland , Ireland and Wales.

During the late 19th and early 20th century, the sport in Africa was spread by settlers and colonials who often adopted a "whites-only" policy to playing the game.
This resulted in rugby being viewed as a bourgeois sport by the indigenous people with limited appeal. The earliest countries to see the playing of competitive rugby include South Africa, and neighbouring Rhodesia modern-day Zimbabwe , which formed the Rhodesia Rugby Football Union in and became a regular stop for touring British and New Zealand sides.
