The photo there shows Rugby Union - you have two breakaways in the scrum.
Ruby Union has 15 in the team.

Rugby League - unfortunately now here is a game for the THUGS!
It doesn't have breakaways - 13 in the team.
League here is forever in the news for all the wrong reasons.
You name it - they will comply! Unbelievable and overpaid morons.

It is football season here now in Australia - League, Union, Aussie Rules and soccer.
Cheers
Colin
