England's national sports—rugby—was born in 1823 after an incident when an English​ schoolboy named William Webb-Ellis took a ball and ran away with it during a football game. The Rugby Union is older and more complicated than Rugby League. Though the latter was introduced to meet the needs of an average spectator, many remain devoted to the Rugby Union, despite its countless rules. The games take place in the Twickenham Stadium between September and May.
