The Basics

Welcome to ‘Rugby Explained’ brought to you by Leicester Tigers.

At Tigers we believe Rugby Union is the best and most entertaining contact sport in the world, but it is also unique: with line-outs, rucks, mauls and scrums which are all exclusive to the game. Rugby Explained aims to simplify the game of rugby and describe the ins and outs of this great sport, from players and positions to line-outs and scrums.

In this section of Rugby Explained we look at the basics and integral parts of rugby and how the game is played.
