The intended meaning is: when the game of rugby began it did not have a limit on the number of players and it did not have any boundaries.
A. Limit of the numbers of players illogically means numbers of players has a limit. Moreover numbers is wrong, should be number. After or the sentence becomes without of the boundaries. Does not make sense.
B. Correct. With no limit on number of players and with no boundaries. Clear and concise.
C. Limitation does not mean the same as limit and is incorrect in this context.As to is incorrect here. Distorts the meaning.
D. This says the game of rugby was without a limit- Illogical
E. It should be with no boundaries
B is correct
