Long Island Colts Rugby High School Team Seeks Members

Registration is currently under way for 45 positions to form the under 19’s and under 15’s Long Island Colts boys rugby teams. Season dues are $150.

High school rugby in the USA, a spring sport, is played on a football-size field without helmets, pads or timeouts. A game of rugby typically lasts 60 minutes and all athletes play offense and defense and each player on the field is expected to run like a wide receiver, kick like a punter, tackle like a defensive back, pass like a quarterback and score touchdowns like a running-back.

Rugby is the latest new sport on Long Island and high school boys interested in playing this tough, full contact game based on football should contact New Zealand coach John Royal at 491-3781, email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
