A Beginners’s Guide to Rugby Union : Equipment


Before playing Rugby, it’s important to understand the equipment you’ll need.

Firstly, you’ll need a sturdy pair of boots with studs or cleats which are appropriate to the conditions. These are essential to providing the purchase you’ll require, especially in contact situations.

It is recommended that you wear a mouth guard to protect the teeth and jaw, and some players choose to wear World Rugby approved head gear and/or padded equipment, worn under the shirt.
