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.
No prior rugby experience needed.
