Rugby Union

Rugby union is a contact sport where aim is to use the ball to score more points than the other team.

An Overview of Rugby Union

You can run with the ball, kick it and pass it, but passing the ball forwards is not allowed.

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

Benefits

From scrummaging to tackling, to sprinting with the ball, this can be a high intensity workout that will boost both your fitness and your strength.

Costs

Costs will vary across the country from club to club.
