Rugby is a complex game with a number of laws that are to be interpreted by the official on the field.  Those laws give rise to a number of different styles of play and structures with which to guide your team towards victory.  Game play is dictated by a number of different aspects such as; Pre-conceived gameplans, stages of the game, team strengths, opposition stregths, score, weather conditions....
