Um don't think so .
2 have full contact where tackling is probably the biggest focus of the game. The other has no tackling at all

Touch is the non tackle version of RL

Nothing to do with soccer .
You tried to say RU & RL were more alike
That's wrong .
The opinion of a fumbler is worth nothing .

It was in 1968 that the first recognised competition took place with the formation of the South Sydney Touch Football Association at Pioneer Park, Malabar. The sport quickly took hold in a number of inner-city areas of Sydney and the New South Wales Touch Association was formed in 1972, catering for six affiliated associations and approximately 1500 registered players. The first country association was in Wagga Wagga, which was formed in 1973, and women’s touch was first played at a representative level in 1979.

Touch appealed to ex-footballers retired from the game through age or injury and to players not willing or able to play regular rugby but interested in playing. An increased awareness in fitness in the adult population and the inability or unwillingness of former footballers to engage in another sporting activity,
coaching, or nothing at all, all served to develop the game.

The earliest interstate clashes in Touch occurred when the Brisbane Touch Association representative team played a NSW (South Sydney) team in 1973, 1974, and 1975. NSW wanted to have this match played ten-a-side but Brisbane would not allow this and the matches were played 8-a-side on a standard Rugby League field. One of the games in the series was played as a curtain raiser to an interstate Rugby League clash. In 1976, Touch was played as a curtain raiserto the Sydney Rugby League Grand Final.

given tackling is probably the most important part of both forms of rugby, touch is less like RL than RU. The fact you argue otherwise is hilarious

And taking tackling out of RL is a bigger change to the fabric of the game than the few differences between RL and RU. You could watch a few minutes of RU and struggle to tell it wasnt RL. Youd only need to see one set to tell touch was a different game

And touch in America is called.... wait for it...……...touch football......or we might call it touch gridiron.

'Touch football is a variant of American football in which the basic rules are similar to those of the mainstream game (called "tackle football" for contrast), but instead of tackling players to the ground, the person carrying the ball need only be touched by a member of the opposite team to end a down. The game is usually played by amateurs on a recreational basis.'

So touch gridiron is a variant of American football. Yep, same as NRL touch is a variant of NRL tackle football. Same sports. One touch version. One tackle version. Pretty simple for even semi intelligent folk. This dill won't get it of course lolololololol.
