New to rugby, FAQ
Does it matter if I don’t understand the rules?
Not at all! Most beginners don’t know the rules of Rugby to start with and that’s totally fine. We recommend watching some Rugby on TV or online plus a coach or mentor will be on hand to offer guidance each step of the way.'
Does it matter if I have never played sport before?
Not in the slightest. There are lots of new players taking up Rugby all the time, so you are definitely not alone!
We’re conscious not to throw people in the deep end, so whatever type of Rugby you decide to get involved with, you can do so at your own pace. Your coach will teach you the basics at training, so you feel comfortable before you play any matches.
Do I need to join a club?
Unless you can play at school, you’ll need to join a club but don’t worry it’s super easy!
What do I wear?
Don’t worry about buying new stuff to start with as you can train in sportswear and runners. Your team will help you sort your playing uniform (also known as kit) when the time is right. You will also need to get yourself a mouth guard before you commence any contact sessions.
Typically starts mid January and runs until outdoor training is feasible
Typically starts mid March and runs twice a week until the end of the season
