Rugby Club Shows

Did you ever wonder as you
walked your girl home after a
Michigan football game, what 30
guys were doing on Wines field
running back and forth chasing
a ball that resembles the American
Those 30 guys are playing rugby,
a sport that has been organized
as a club for eight years on the
Michigan campus. Played like a
combination of soccer and foot-
ball, Rugby is the game to which
American football owes its origin.
Rugby is a game that has been
steadily growing in popularity in
the United States over the last
decade. Al McLean, Michigan rug-

six schools had teams in the East
in 1959. This number has sharply
increased to 53 this year.

Rugby can be described as a
continous football game with no
blocking and forward passing. It
is played between teams of 15 men
each with no substitution and vir-
tually no time-outs for two 35 or
40 minute halves. Played on a 100-
yard field slightly wider than a
football field, the principle method
of scoring is the "try" touchdown
in which the ball has actually to
be touched down in the end-zone
A try counts three points while
a conversion counts two, made by
place-kicking the ball between the
uprights of the goal posts. The
kick is taken from a point opposite
where the try is scored. A drop-
kick made during play which pass-
es- through the uprights also
counts three points but no con-
version attempt follows a drop-
The emphasis of rugby is on
stamina and quick thinking rather
than speed, size and ability to exe-
cute rehearsed plays. No padding
or helmets are allowed. The 'ball
is oval, somethting like an over-
sized or 1900 vintage football.
The Michigan club, which gets
financial help from Michigan In-
tramurals in the form of niforms,
is a member of the Southwest On-
tario Rugby Union. Michigan won
the league championship last year
with a 6-3 sudden death -vertime
win over Sarnia. Earlier, the club even said that many
