Rugby is played throughout the world by men and women, boys and girls. Players are attracted to Rugby because of its unique character-building values.
Our sport is built upon the principles of camaraderie, fair play, respect and teamwork. Every player knows these principles are more important than winning or losing.
From the earliest steps in our sport, players are taught the basics of playing fair, enjoying the game and respecting the officials and opponents alike.
World Rugby delivers a whole range of development services and programs to help develop rugby globally. These resources can be access through the World Rugby Passport. The online facilities provide a wealth of information, resources and assistance on all aspects of rugby from getting into rugby, playing all forms of the game, officiating and coaching as well as details that are important to you, the player, on welfare and training.
