The Women's Rugby Team at LSU is open to any female students who want to play. Previous experience is not needed, we can teach you what you need to know. There is no specific size requirement all you need is a good attitude and to be eager to learn. Rugby is a fast paced game with few stoppages and continuous ball possession changes. The object of the game is that two teams of fifteen players each should score as many points as possible during two 40-minute halves, by carrying, passing, kicking and grounding the ball. All players must also be able to tackle and defend, making each position both offensive and defensive in nature. Rugby is a full contact sport and considered to be a mix between football and soccer. Unlike football, however, there is no blocking. Whether you’re fast or slow, short or tall there is a place for you in rugby!
