Rugby League evovled following a rift in the world of English Rugby Union in the late 1800s/early 1900s, with a break-away group initially banishing lineouts from the new game and decreasing the number of players on the field from 15 to 13. A similar rift in Australia conspired to make League more popular than Union 'down-under', and over the years the game has evolved in to the fast-paced, physcial confrontation we know and love!
