Pumas Walking Rugby
If you thought that your playing days were over or you wish to use your handling skills in a non contact environment then...
Come on down
The Pumas are re-establishing a new Walking Rugby team.
Walking Rugby is for anyone (male or female) interested in the game plus wishing to keep fit. Sessions are adapted to cater for all backgrounds and experiences of rugby. Veterans of the game are welcome as are newcomers to the sport.
Just come and enjoy a friendly session and keep getting fit with your new found friends and team mates.
How it is played
As the name suggests, running is forbidden as is passing the ball higher than shoulder height.
There are also no high tackles – or indeed any tackles – and, crucially, no scrums, rucks or mauls. Instead players are allowed to hold onto the ball for no more than three seconds before passing, keeping the pace moving and giving the other team an opportunity to intercept.
No running allowed. Simple.
