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.

A top rugby player will be fit and strong. To beat players when running players will need a combination of speed and movement skills.
