League Format

There will be 4 games a week, using half the pitch each, games will be 40 minutes (2 x 20-minute halves) in a 45-minute slot to allow for a half-time break and a quick warm up. Games must end after the 45 minutes regardless of whether the full game has been played as the pitch will be needed for the following teams. Games will be self-refereed (subject to change) with subs waiting on the touchline and can be subbed on at any stoppage. 

Touch rugby rules 

  • 7 players on the pitch at any given time 

  • After being touched a player must roll the ball under their feet 

  • No offloads after being touched 

  • After 6 touches the ball is turned over to the opposition 

  • Any dropped ball results in possession going to the opposition 

  • No kicking the ball 

  • 1 point per try and no conversions 

  • No scrums / lineouts / penalties, all restarts will be a tap-and-go 

  • We recommend players wear Astros to play (trainers are acceptable but may be slippery), under no circumstances can any player wear blades or studs.   

Any disputes will be settled by the league’s organiser, any teams regularly involved in disputes/scuffles will be docked points and possibly removed from the league if this behaviour continues.
