Rugby has become one of the most spectacular ball sports in the world. During a rugby match, you are only allowed to throw the ball backwards. So to score, you have to run forward with the ball or kick it forwards. Rugby is an intense, challenging and physical sport which involves a lot of physical contact. This is even an essential part of the sport. To play the sport well you need to have technique, ball skills, speed, endurance and perseverance. Though anyone can play it, male or female, large or small, there’s a position for everyone on the rugby field!

Safety measures coronavirus:

  • Adhere to the RIVM guidelines and the guidelines of the TU Delft.
  • Keeping 1.5 metres distance is no longer a rule; however, it is still a sensible idea to allow each other plenty of room.
  • Any symptoms: stay at home and get tested.
  • Good hygiene remains important.
  • If you take part in activities that fall under your X subscription, make sure you have your Campus Card or X card with you.
  • Inside Cafe X and at some events, a COVID certificate is required.
