Rugby Scores

 

In rugby games the teams score 5 points for a try, 2 for a conversion following a try and 3 for a penalty kick.

Many scores in rugby can only be achieved in one way e.g. a point score of 7 could only be a try, plus a conversion. Other scores could be achieved in a number of ways e.g. 12 could be 4 penalties or 2 tries plus one conversion
