Touch rugby is a social form of rugby with minimal contact. It’s a great fun way to keep fit or get fit even if you have never played rugby before, and is a great way to get into sport.

Touch rugby is a 6-a-side game, which is played in 2x 20 min halves on a smaller pitch than the standard 13-a-side game. The aim of the game is to score more tries than the opposition. To score a try, it’s the same as in other formats of the game, to put the ball down behind the oppositions try line.

Featherstone Rovers foundation are running a social touch session for 14+ and all abilities to come and play touch rugby at The Millennium Stadium in Featherstone for just £2.00 a session, to register your interest please fill in the google form below, and you can book on via Gameday.
