Wider Image: The Home Of Rugby
The first handwritten rules for rugby football, dated August 28, 1845, are seen in a pupil's minutes book at Rugby School in central England, March 18, 2015. Rugby School is known as the spiritual home of rugby. According to a popular version of the game's origins, it was on the school's playing field that in 1823, in a game that could loosely be described as football but was more like a brawl, a pupil called William Webb Ellis caught the ball and, instead of kicking towards the goal, sprinted with it - breaking the code and laying the way for modern-day rugby. Five months from now, on September 18, the Rugby World Cup kicks off in Britain. REUTERS/Neil Hall
