“Since the arrival of professional rugby league in the area we have seen a rise in popularity of rugby in general. We are delighted to work in partnership with the Wales Rugby League to get more people active and most importantly have fun.
“The great thing is that players of all abilities have been showing up to play. There have been people from different sporting backgrounds as well as people who are just looking for a new way to keep fit.”
By removing tackles and other contact elements of the sport, Touch Rugby is more about athleticism and exercise, encouraging players to be both agile and accurate in passing and catching.

“It’s great to see so many people getting involved and staying active. The sessions have been very popular and I would encourage people of all abilities to come down to Queensway and give it a go. With the RLWC2013 just around the corner, we’re keen to increase participation in the sport, whatever your ability may be.”
