Sign Up To Play Cadbury Boost Touch

Summer will see the new IRFU Touch rugby programme taking to rugby clubs in Belfast, Dublin and Galway, in association with Cadbury Boost as its main sponsor.

Launched by Cadbury Ambassador, Ireland international Tommy Bowe, this form of the game will complement well the continuing growth of rugby in Ireland once it’s leagues commence in May.

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.

Mark Connolly, IRFU Participation Rugby Manager, said: “The IRFU are very excited to introduce a new form of rugby in Cadbury Boost Touch through our club network.

“The game is a fun, fast and skillful form of social rugby that gives the opportunity for participants to experience a non-contact form of rugby, while still enjoying the health and fitness benefits of regular exercise.

Along with our tag rugby programme, we now have social forms of non-contact rugby to suit all ability and fitness levels from the complete beginner to the keen competitor.
