What’s it all about?

Rugby league is one of the fastest growing team sports in the UK and the world.

It’s a fully inclusive sport which has a variety of adaptations to suit a range of participants. In the traditional format it is a 13 a side full contact collision sport. The higher the level played the more intense the fitness requirements. In attack the offence has a set of six chances or tackles to score before the ball is turned over to the opponents.

The sport encourages fitness at all levels, gives real importance to team work, builds confidence and emphasises respect and inclusion.
