ECU Men's Rugby

 
ECU Men's RugbyA fast, full-contact sport that uses skills found in both football and soccer, rugby is an action-packed sport played without padding. While forward passing is not allowed in rugby, players can gain ground by kicking or running the ball down field. Scoring is achieved by either a try or a goal.  A try (at goal) involves grounding the ball, that is, touching the ball to the ground over the goal line at the opponent's end of the field.  Three different types of kicks at goal can score points:  the goal kick after a try has been awarded (which if successful becomes a conversion), the drop kick, and the penalty kick.

ECU Club Rugby plays in the highly competitive Carolinas Rugby League and practices on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at the North Recreational Complex. Each member of the Pirate Rugby team comes to the pitch with a different level of game experience and skill set. Anyone is welcome to come out and see how the team practices and what rugby is all about.
