This is XRugby7s.

A new format of rugby, which is big on enjoyment, and low on commitment. It’s a quicker game, with fewer players which can be played almost anywhere. It is contact rugby but not as you know it!

Whether you’ve never played before, or you’re getting back into things, XRugby7s is the game for you.

You can get involved by registering online, don't worry if you have haven't played before, we'll show you the ropes and you'll meet a load of new friends looking to do the same thing.
