At some point, it seems that has been marked as a synonym of . I'd suggest that this change should be reversed, and we should have three separate tags:

  • : for general questions about rugby which cross both union and league
  • : for union specific questions
  • : for league specific questions

As an example of a question which I think would be improved by this, see Rugby penalty kick into touch-in-goal - that's absolutely a union-specific question, and the answer will be significantly different for league. Yet the only thing we can tag it with is which includes league as part of its definition.

See also: Should the Rugby tag be removed - replaced with just Rugby-Union and Rugby-League?, although that's from 2012.

  • OK. this now has four upvotes and nobody saying "don't do this", so I'm taking it as a general sign of consensus. However, I don't believe this is something I can do with my limited powers - mods, is this something you can help with?

  • rugby and rugby-union have been desynonymized.

As noted in the comments, @edmastermind29 has removed the synonym. My work here is done (although we should probably consider retagging some questions).

  • Feel free to flag some questions with the retagging request and I will gladly retag.

    I can retag them - it's just a matter of time :-)
