Rugby Europe Championship

For subscribers in USA, Canada, Middle East, North Africa, and Latin America.

Spain is looking to unseat the powerful Georgians on Sunday in a massive game. (Fun fact: this game will come with Georgian commentary, so brush up: ragbi is Rugby, lelo is try, dart'g'ma is kick, and scrum is scrum.) 

Spain lost a close one to Georgia last year.

Also on the slate, Russia takes on Belgium, who did well to beat Germany in the mud last week.

Romania and Germany both lost close games, and are still in the hunt—at least the winner will be.

"What Is Rugby?" - As Told By USA Eagles

What is rugby and what does it mean to those who play it? I had the privilege of speaking with eight different USA National Team players over the past couple of weeks, and I asked each of them that very question, "What is rugby?"

What Is Rugby Sevens & How Did It Get Started?

Somewhere, someday, somebody in 19th century thought to themselves, "Hmm, rugby would be a lot cooler if there were less players and more space to work with." The solution to this pondering was the invention of rugby sevens, which as the name would suggest, involves two teams of sevens playing on the same size pitch as a standard rugby game. 

Getting Started: How Do I Play Rugby?

Though it's one of the greatest, if not the greatest, sports in the world, rugby remains a relatively unknown commodity in the United States. Yes, it's continued to gain some traction through the years and the garden variety sports fan has come to know what the sport is, but by and large it's still a very niche game in the states. 

Rugby Equipment Every Team Should Have

One of the beautiful things about rugby is that it doesn't take much more than a ball, a pair of boots, some shorts, a shirt, and a mouthpiece to play it. It's an excellent sport that requires little in the way of setting it up, whether it's a real game or just touch.

Rugby Rules 101: What Is a Maul?

One of the most effective ways to cross over the try-line is the use of an efficient rolling maul. From club rugby to professional rugby, all the way to the international level, you'll see teams put opponents to the sword with a powerful maul. But, what are the rules surrounding this move, and how can a team make the most of a maul in a given situation?

Best Players To Wear Rugby Gloves

If there was ever time when rugby gloves ruled the sporting landscape, it was probably the 2003 Rugby World Cup in Australia. From Matt Dawson to Matt Giteau, George Smith to Stirling Mortlock, some of the best players in the world donned the gloves when they played. 

A Brief History of Rugby

By now, many of us have heard the age old legend which tells of William Webb Ellis picking up the soccer ball and running with it, creating what would become known as rugby football in 1823.
