Rugby league football is a full-contact sport played by two teams of thirteen players on a rectangular field . One of the two codes of rugby, it originated in Northern England in 1895 as a split from the Rugby Football Union over the issue of payments to players. Its rules progressively changed with the aim of producing a faster, more entertaining game for spectators. In rugby league, points are scored by carrying the ball and touching it to the ground beyond the opposing team 's goal line; this is called a try , and is the primary method of scoring. The opposing team attempts to stop the attacking side scoring points by tackling the player carrying the ball . In addition to tries, points can be scored by kicking goals. After each try , the scoring team gains a free kick to try at goal with a conversion for further points. Kicks at goal may also be awarded for penalties, and field goals can be attempted at any time . Rugby league is a popular sport in Northern England , the states of Queensland and New South Wales in Australia , New Zealand , southwest France and is the national sport of Papua New Guinea . The European Super League and the National Rugby League (NRL) are the premier club competitions.
