Rugby Equipment


Rugby is a fairly inexpensive sport because there is very little equipment needed for the sport.  All you really need is a pair of cleats, a mouth guard and a ball. 


Rugby Equipment

Rugby cleats can be purchased and will cost anywhere from $35 to $90 but football or soccer cleats are acceptable. 

Rugby balls are recommended but are not required and they run about $20. 

In addition, a mouth guard or gum shield is mandatory in regulation play. Every mouth is different so you will need to follow the directions on the package to mold the mouth guard to your teeth.  This is an extremely important piece of equipment for the rugby player.

There is an optional soft-padded head gear called a scrum cap used to protect the pack player's ears and head in the scrum.  Scrum caps are highly recommended by not required unless you have had a previous head injury like a concussion.  This headgear is usually made from light synthetic materials.  It is important to remember to get the right fit and to make sure it is comfortable.

The club supplies jerseys, sometimes for a fee, but in all cases you will need to purchase your own  socks and shorts.  You will also need spandex shorts to wear under the rugby shorts in matches.

Gear can be purchased online or at your local sporting goods store.
