We have played this traditional 15-man rugby in Norway for 50 years. In addition, we also play 7s rugby and 10 man rugby. The 7s & 10s game is played by both men and women, whereas only the men play the full 15-man game at the moment.
Points are scored with “tries”, which is when players are able to place the ball on the ground of the opponents “try zone”. This form of scoring gives the team 5 points, another variation of the “try” is a “penalty try”. This is where the referee awards a try that was certain to be scored but prevented by the opposition using foul play. After a”try” the team is given a chance for extra points with a “conversion” this is when the ball is taken back in line with where the ball was scored; then a player tries to kick it through the posts. A conversion is worth 2 points.
