      Rugby has become a recognised International sporting competitive. Even though there is a 4 yearly World Cup competition, for which all members of the IRB have to play to qualify for this World Cup Trophy all othersports also have theor individual specific competuions but the Olympic Games allow these sports to participate in its 4 yearly event. The logistics for accommodating teams that have at least 25 members in a squad may cause untold problems but the number of teams allowed to compete in the Olympics could be limited. A further consideration could be that 7 aside rugby be initially accepted into the Olympics and if this is successful 15 a side could be included at a later date. recognised
