Rugby Players Wanted

Practices are Sundays at 12 p.m. at Robert Finley Middle school; call head coach John Royal at 491-3761 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for schedule and details. Students from grades 5 through to 12 are invited to try a practice each Sunday at noon. Rugby is similar to football, with all two-way players. There is no blocking or tackling above the shoulders. All athletes are coached on correct tackling technique, which will transfer over and improve football players. In addition to tackling, players will learn to lateral pass and punt in general play.
