New to Rugby?

Rugby is a unique sport which caters for all abilities. Whether you are small, strong, fast or slow, rugby has a position for everyone, no matter what shape or size. It fields 15 players at a time (8 forwards, 7 backs) with up to 7 subs.

The aim of the game is very simple – use the ball to score more points than the other team. You can run with the ball, kick it and pass it, but only pass backwards! Rugby union is a contact sport, so you can tackle an opponent in order to get the ball, as long as you stay within the rules. There is a referee, aided by two touch judges (one on each side of the pitch), to decide how the rules should be applied during a game. There are several ways to score points.

  • A try – five points are awarded for touching the ball down in your opponent’s goal area
  • A conversion – two points are added for a successful kick through the goalposts after a try
  • A goal kick – three points are awarded for a penalty kick or drop goal through the posts

If both teams score the same amount of points, or no points are scored, then the match is a draw. In some cases, extra time is played to decide who wins.
