In rugby (union and league), points are earned in various different ways during a game.
Here's the scoring system in rugby union:
- try, 5 points (and then the opportunity to kick a conversion for 2 points);
- penalty, 3 points;
- drop goal, 3 points (not frequent).
So, looking at a scoreline from a game, can pupils work out how the teams achieved the scores they have? These could be mid-game (like the ones below), full time or even fictional.

@PrimaryIdeas could also compare scores between codes, what would the score line be in the other code?— Mark Boylan (@ictlinks) 23 March 2017
