how to play Rugby

    1. Understand that rugby matches are 80 minutes long, and you're running during most of it. Get in good running shape.





    2. 2

      Warm up and stretch properly so you don't get injured


    3. 3

      Realize that rugby is not a stop-start game with a lot of breaks. Work on your endurance.


    4. 4

      Note that in rugby there are two main positions; backs and forwards, the backs need to be fast agile and quick thinkers, forwards need to be be strong, heavy (a little) and fit:). Find which one you fit into.


    5. 5

      Try to develop your ball-in-hand skills; i.e., passing and catching because the modern game is all about passing. The ball is faster than you so let the ball do the work. Dropping the ball can immediately stop a formerly successful play, so make sure you have the skills not to fumble the ball
      1. Learn That Haka as you will have to perform it before each game.(Optional)


    6. 7

      Learn the game. Pick up a book that outlines the laws such as "Rugby for Dummies" and don't be afraid to ask your team mates questions...even if the questions seem silly or stupid to you..


    7. 8

      Get a good rugby coach that knows how to teach tackling properly.


    8. 9

      Don't be afraid! Get stuck in, players that are not fully committed to a tackle are the ones that come out with the injuries.


    9. 10

      Never argue with a rugby referee. Referees for this sport are treated with respect unlike the all the other sports you see on TV. Address the ref as "Sir" or "Ma'am".
