Forms of rugby

There are several variants of the traditional 15-a-side game, all of which are enjoyed worldwide.

Ranging from the non-contact forms of rugby such as beach rugby, touch & tag to the full contact rugby sevens, Tens, and veterans, these variations are great for those who flinch at the sight of a scrum but enjoy the incomparable buzz of scoring a try.

There is no limit to the level you can reach either; these variants are represented at international level.

England have highly successful men's and women's Rugby Sevens sides, who compete all over the planet in tournaments, demonstrating key skills that are important for progression towards the full England first teams.

The preconception that these different forms of the game are just for children couldn’t be further from the truth: even the pros are quite partial to a game of touch or tag rugby during training sessions. Rugby truly is a game to be enjoyed by all.
