Rugby for Everyone

491220663

With the inclusion of rugby 7s into the Olympic program, our sport is reaching a wider audience than ever before, as the number of men, women and children playing and taking part in rugby is ever growing. In the world of rugby, a large emphasis is placed on the values that rugby teaches and gives to those involved in the game, which are; integrity, passion, solidarity, discipline and respect. More about rugby’s values can be found on the World Rugby website. It is around these values that Lugi models itself as a club and we are always looking to welcome those who buy into these values and want to experience a sport that is unique in the way it welcomes newcomers.

Whilst most peoples views of rugby are of big, burly men chasing each other around a muddy pitch (and this still applies in some cases), the evolution of the game has seen a bigger emphasis on the core skills such as passing, evasion and handling that are included in the game. With this in mind, rugby is truly a game for everyone, no matter what size or shape and our philosophy at Lugi is to find out what you do best and help you realise your rugby potential!
