BASIC RULES OF TOUCH RUGBY:

Touch is played in a similar way to rugby, but the rules are very different

Touches

Touches:

Instead of tackling, players must touch their opponent anywhere on their body to stop their advance. Once a touch is made the defence must retreat 7m to be onside.

Possession

Change of possession:

You have 6 touches to score or the ball changes possesion.

Ball Handling

Ball Handling:

The ball can only be passed backwards the same as rugby. Once a touch is made the player with the ball has to place it on the ground and step over it. This is called a "roll ball" or "ruck".

Contact

Physical Contact:

No physical contact of any kind is allowed, including pushing, pulling or grabbing opponents.

Team Setup

Team Setup:

Touch is played by teams of 6v6, with the mixed category requiring a minimum of 3 ladies on the pitch at all times.

Basic Rules

Basic Rules:

No kicking of the ball allowed, and tries are scored just like in rugby.

Matches

Matches:

A touch game is 40 minutes with two 20 minute halves and a 5 minute break. The pitch is 70m from try line to try line and 40m wide.

These are the basic rules, but there may be some variations depending on the league or competition.

TOUCH VALUES

Touch is a sport that is developing the fastest in Europe due to its simplicity, the mixed aspect and the opportunity to play with players of different ages in the same team (parents and children).

Among the values of Touch, integration, respect, tolerance, passion, improvement, effort, cooperation and fun stand out.

Touch is one of the few team sports in which girls and boys, women and men enjoy playing together and against each other. Mixed competitions make Touch very popular for all ages.
