What's the difference between rugby union and rugby league? Is it that the former refers to the sport itself and the latter refers to it when it is played in a league?

No, they are two separate sports. There are plenty of differences in the rules, but the main conceptual difference is in control of possession - in rugby union when the ball is "in play" the defending team can always try to win it back, whereas in rugby league when a tackle is made each team must retreat ten metres, and the attacking team can restart play, up to five times (i.e. on the sixth consecutive tackle they lose possession to the other team).

EDIT: Originally there was just Rugby Football, i.e. football as played at Rugby School, which spread further afield in the 19th Century. The first governing body in the world was the Rugby Football Union in England, and in 1895 a group of clubs from the North of England, upset with the RFU's total ban on paying players from time lost from work (the game in the North was mainly played by working men who only had Sundays off), broke away and formed the Northern Union, which later became the Rugby Football League. The games played by RFU clubs and RFL clubs gradually diverged - both sides still called their game "rugby", but to differentiate the press started calling them "rugby union" and "rugby league"...

Yes they do but it isn't common to see a 135m long field, maybe in the Juniors. The SCG (Sydney Cricket Ground) home to the Swans is the shortest field in the Australian Football league, up until this year (where minor improvements were made to the field during the building of a new stand) the 50m arcs intersected into the centre square, I think the field measured 144m now its 5m longer (149m/136m). Still the ground causes controversy to its suitablitity for the premier competition. The Swans have a good rental agreement witht e stadiums landlords and are unlikely to ever move from there (which has been home for 26 years) to ANZ stadium (olympic stadium) which is longer (160m/118m). The longest ground in the league (which is also quite narrow) is Subiaco Oval in Perth at 175.6m, the widest ground is the MCG at 141m and the narrowest is Skilled Park in Geelong at 115m. The biggest ever was the former Waverley Park (72000) which was 182m/142m, just too big, it was replaced with Telstra Dome which is 159.5m/128.8m

The more circular wide grounds are normally traditional Cricket grounds with Australian Football being the winter tenant, the longer narrower grounds tend to be solely Australian Football grounds.

note; dimensions given at from sideline to sideline in play rather than fence to fence were you can normally at another 5m to 7m between fence and sideline paint.
