1) What is rugby?
Rugby is a contact team sport originated in England in the first half of the 19th century. The sport is based on running with the ball in hand. In its most common form, a game is between two teams of 15 players using an oval-shaped ball on a rectangular field with H-shaped goalposts on each try line. Rugby, also known as the "sport for all sizes" is an inclusive sport with positions suited to different body types.
2) What is rugby 7s?
7 player teams, with 7 minute halves - fewer players on the pitch means a faster match!
Rugby 7s or Rugby Sevens has quickly risen in popularity, especially after its recent inclusion as an Olympic Sport. Canada women's national sevens rugby team won bronze at the 2016 Summer Olympics; and both the women's and men's national sevens rugby teams won gold at 2015 Pan American Games.
Corporate 7s is a non-contact version of rugby 7s, using flags.
