Rugby school played a game of football with 100 of players in . They weren’t really playing real football. They were permitted to not run with the ball but could hold on to it. They played with no fixed limit of players, you could put any number on the team, maybe even 100. An enormous rolling maul gathered all together and heaps of people had major injuries as a result.
In1823 William Web Ellis ran with the ball and scored a try on the opposition goal.
In 1845 the first set of the rules were written for the new game called rugby.
