With the World Cup Coming, It's the Perfect Time to Try Touch Rugby

I believe touch rugby and rugby in general is an incredibly positive and exciting team sport and the values involved in rugby are crucial for achieving anything in life. The values learnt through team skills, playing a role in a group and learning how to win or lose cannot be underestimated in terms of their value going forward. Whether you are young, old, male or female, the skills and values you can learn through rugby are hugely beneficial. The O2 Touch Tours are all about introducing people to rugby in the run up to the World Cup, taking place this year in England and Wales... and with the tournament fast approaching I believe England are in good shape.
