The Rugby Union season is back up on us and with Sky Bet there is plenty of opportunities to make every try even more important with a wide range of rugby union bets. Rugby Union is the most popular form of rugby and is played throughout the world, followed by millions upon millions of fans.
Rugby Union came about in the late 1800s. Based on the original game of Rugby – which itself was formed around 1823 – Rugby Union developed its laws in 1845 and formed in 1871. However it only acquired the ‘union’ tag when an offshoot – Rugby League – was formed in 1895.
Rugby Union has only become the lucrative force it is now within the last 10 years or so when restrictions on wages were lifted in 1996 to effectively end the ‘amateur’ tag associated with Rugby Union.
With Sky Bet you can bet on all the major tournaments and leagues throughout the Rugby League season from the inaugural competitions such as the Tri Nations and Heineken Cup to the epic Guinness Premiership. You’ll have the chance to bet on winners in each and every stage of every competition as well as overall winners of individual competitions.
