New to rugby?

A scrum restarts a rugby game after a minor infringement of the rules, according to Houston SaberCats head coach Justin Fitzpatrick.

The SaberCats begin play next year in the newly-formed Major League Rugby. The club’s home game will be played at Constellation Field in Sugar Land.

Fitzpatrick often has his players train for a scrum by pushing a sled full of people during practice.
