Rugby is one of the most popular team sports in England, played in two main formats; Rugby League and Rugby Union. London hosts first tier teams in both 'codes' of the sport as well as the Twickenham, the national stadium for Rugby Union.
At London Youth Games we offer three types of competition:
- Tag Rugby League (Schools) - year 5 & 6, mixed
- Contact Rugby (Schools) - U13 girls & U15 girls (new development competition in 2017)
- Sevens Male (open), U19 Development competition.
The RFU manages the development of rugby union in England, with objectives of increasing participation, developing players and preparing the England side for major championships.
