Rugby football refers to both rugby union and rugby league, two very different styles of the rugby game.
Both styles--or codes as they're popularly called--of rugby football are nowadays played on both professional and amateur levels in the UK, although as a spectator sport, rugby union is the more popular of the two. However, until recently, rugby union was never associated with professionalism, being an entirely top to bottom amateur sport.
Because rugby football is a contact sport, all rugby clubs frown upon unfair play, and has resulted in the sport being known as a "ruffian's game played by gentleman".
The two forms of rugby football have evolved to become part of the British class divide with rugby union being a popular game amongst boys in public and grammar schools. Rugby league, however, is seen to be the sport of the working classes.
Historically, rugby football is said to have evolved from Rugby School, a public boy's school in Warwickshire, where legend has it that during a game of football "William Webb Ellis took the ball in his arms and ran with it."
