13 players per side plus substitutes
There are no accurate statistics as there are many armature, school, collage and university side that are not affiliated under the WRU but its estimated in excess of 150 thous…and
Union code - 30. 15 on each side League 26 - 13 on each side
15 for rugby union, 13 for rugby league and 7 for sevens!
about 200 million
In Rugby Union, 15 players each side, with 7 substitutes each. In Rugby League, 13 players each side, with 4(?) substitutes each.
In the union code 15 players on each team (plus substitutes). This totals no more than thirty players on the field at any point during the game from both side. If there are …more than 15 players from one team on the field, it is a penalty. In the League code there are 13 players plus subs for each team. No more than 26 may be on the field at anyone time. In this code the wing fowards (flankers) are not used. In a severns team as the name infers only 7 a side for each team may be on the fieled of play at anyone time.
two teams of 15 players
IRB Law 19.8 (a) At least two players IRB Law 19.8 (b) The team throwing decides the maximum number of players in the lineout That means you must have at least two but you ca…n have all 15 players in but the must stand between the 5 meter and 15 meter lines
15 each side plus 5 subs allowed for each side 30 on the pitch at anyone time with a total of 10 subs between both teams.
