    No, you can’t use a football to play rugby. While they are both oval in shape and 11 inches long, the ends of a rugby ball are flatter. That means it has more drag through the air as it is passed from one player to the next, which is a lot more frequent in rugby than it is in football, where the ball is often thrown in a lateral formation. All rugby balls now are synthetic, since leather absorbs water and becomes heavy. While the standard regulation rugby ball size is 5, there are also smaller sizes for kids and practice use, and a wide range of colors and licensed logos are available.
