Rugby is a sport that started when a young man picked up a soccer ball with his hands and ran with it. The sport dates back to the school of Rugby in 1830 and has changed greatly into the athletic game it is today. In fact there are two forms of Rugby Union played today, the traditional 15's game and the more recent 7's. Over the years the laws have changed to protect the players from dangerous play and today we have a game that is big in fun and low in serious injuries.
Rugby is played by all ages starting as soon as the children can run and catch a ball and enjoyed by both boys and girls. The 7's game is played at the Olympic Games and in tournaments around the word. An abbreviated version of the traditional game of 15's, this fast paced and action packed game has grown in popularity and the tournaments have become a fun event for spectators.
Today everyone is able to play rugby, young or old, boy or girl, short or tall the game has a place for you. 15's has 15 positions on the field and allows for 8 replacements.
