Origin of rugby and American football
American football is thought to have evolved from rugby. British colonists from Canada are believed to have brought American football. At that time, the two of them were not different like now.
The origin of rugby in England goes back to the 19th century and even earlier. By 1800, procedures were introduced in football law at seven major British public schools. Throwing the ball is allowed in football in the early 1800s when players are allowed to mark and then take a free kick.
Rugby League was formed in 1871 by representatives of 21 clubs – all in the south of England and most of them in London. By early 1890, rugby football had spread and more than half of RFU clubs in northern England. The working classes in northern England and South Wales are especially involved with rugby (football).
American football is played on a 120-yard (110-meter) wide rectangular field that is 53 1/3 yards (49 meters) wide. Near each end of the school is a target line; they are 100 meters apart. A football field is very similar, it is 120 meters long and about half the width, there is a horizontal line every ten meters.
The most significant difference between American football and rugby is that in Rugby, all players are allowed to handle the ball and any type of blocking, passing forward and running out of time are not allowed. Unlike American football, in the case of Rugby, any kind of screening and obstruction against players without the ball is not allowed. This is the main reason why Rugby is much safer than American football.
