Touch rugby is a game where players touch part of the ball carrier, the ball carrier's clothing or the ball itself, instead of tackling in the more physical sense of the word. Therefore it is a minimum contact version of rugby.
Trys are scored the very same way as in regular rugby ie. touching down the ball with full control on or over the try line. Also as with regular rugby, the normal laws for a pass having to be behind or lateral all apply.
For this competition, there are 6 players on-field in the Men's or Women's comp. A minimum of TWO female players at all times through the game is compulsory in the mixed version.
