Why Play Rugby?
Personal Health & Fitness Lifestyle
The health benefits of Rugby are many and varied, and at the most basic level, Rugby is a great way of increasing the time spent doing physical activity. Current guidelines* suggest that adults should achieve a total of at least 30 minutes a day of at least moderate intensity physical activity on five or more days of the week. For children, the recommendation is at least 60 minutes of at least moderate intensity physical activity each day. At least twice a week this should include activities to improve bone health, muscle strength and flexibility.
The World Rugby Playing Charter is incorporated within the World Rugby laws of the game and can be read in a number of languages by going to world.rugby/laws
