A SPORT FOR ALL THOSE WHO HAVE A PASION FOR SPORT.
Welcome! We are a group built of people from many different backgrounds and nationalities, but together we share the enjoyment of playing rugby.
As a member of the Norwegian Rugby Association, you are also a part of the Norwegian Sports Federation, which is Norway’s largest voluntary organisation with over 2 million members. For the Norwegian Rugby Federation, everyone is welcome to come and play rugby no matter of the ability and type of rugby.We also offer wheelchair rugby, which is the fastest growing sport for those with disabilities.
Rugby and wheelchair rugby are both fast, intense and action packed sports. Here is a beginners guide to rugby.
Rugby is a game where the goal is to get the ball over the opponent’s “try line” and place it on the ground in a firm yet controlled fashion. In theory it is easy, but getting there is the issue. To be able to go forwards, the ball must go backwards when passed around. If the ball s kicked forward, all teammates must be behind the ball once kicked to be able to try and regain the ball. This does seem contradicting, that to go forward, the ball must go back. This just means that teammates must really be reading off the same page as this is a team game and not 1 player can win it. Only by working as one big team can the players move up the pitch and over the try line and to try win the game.
Rugby has many unique aspects about its game, but the key aspect is to create opportunities using the pitch around you. Put simply, the team who at the end of the day has the most possession while denying the opposition movement around the field, will be the team who will win.
