The sport=rugby_union tag is used to identify a rugby pitch used for  Rugby union football. The area should also be tagged with leisure=pitch or leisure=stadium.

Pitch layouts

Note: there are two forms of rugby, the other being sport=rugby_league. If you are not sure which version of rugby is played tag use sport=rugby and leave it to someone to correct the detail. Despite the two different pitch sizes since the removal restrictions on professionalism by the RFU in 1995, it has been possible for clubs to share facilities including pitches. So it maybe best to use sport=rugby for all of these.
