What is Rugby?
The objective of Rugby is simple: two teams play against each other and try to score points by carrying the ball over the opposition’s goal line. Additional points can be scored by kicking the ball through the goal posts at your opponent’s end of the Rugby field. The team with the most points is declared the winner. If the points tallies are equal, then a game is tied.
There is a catch: In order to go FORWARDS on a Rugby pitch, a team must pass the ball BACKWARDS (although the ball can be kicked forwards). Therefore, the focus is on TEAMWORK and WORKING TOGETHER to beat your opponents.
Joining a Rugby community is a great way to meet new people and get active! There are formats to suit all budgets and people – whether you are a newbie, a veteran, a serious athlete or just want to play for fun! Learn more from the sport’s world governing body World Rugby on:
