The Iron Maidens would like to officially welcome you to the rugby community!

Rugby is a full-contact sport open to individuals of all shapes and sizes. The object of the Game is to score as many points as possible while observing fair play, according to the Laws and in a sporting spirit, by carrying, passing, kicking and grounding the ball. Games consist of two 40-minute halves. All players can carry, pass, and kick the ball, and anyone can score.

To learn the basics of the game, visit A Beginners Guide to Rugby Union, an interactive guide to the basic rules and positions. At the end, you can complete an online quiz to test your knowledge.

Ready to learn more? Laws of the Game provides a guide for all of the laws of the game with explanatory videos and details on variations for 7s, 10s, Beach rugby, etc. You can test your knowledge of the laws by taking the Laws Exam and after successfully completing the exam, you will receive a certificate of awareness.
