    According to the present rule, the field is 70m*144m (ingoal 22m).
    However, this rule is largely ignored, and many Rugby teams share stadiums with Association Football.
    I think that the present rule should be changed.
    Rugby field should be 68m*105m, same as Association Football. And, the ingoal should be 10m.
    This change would increase tries.
    And the goal should be placed not on the goal line, but on the dead bowl line, since goal hinders the play.
