New to rugby?

When it comes to passing, rugby laws state the ball must not be passed or thrown forwards. Players always pass backwards to a teammate who is behind them, according to player/coach Sam Windsor.

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