In 1871, the first laws regulating the Rugby Union were inscribed as a method for getting the 21 clubs in existence at the time to adhere to the common set of regulations that would ensure fair play and protection for players in the entire country.  The sport grew within Britain relating to that Empire. Then in 1864 in Australia, Sydney became the first community to form a Rugby Club.

Then in 1886 an International Rugby Board (IRB) was formed as a result of a dispute in an International match between Britain and Scotland.   It was not until 1990 than Britain joined this group as they had chosen the regulations of the IRFB (International Rugby Football Board).  In these modern times, the IRB is the Governing Board for International Rugby.
