Originating in England, Rugby is played as rugby union and rugby league. The league games have 13 players and the union has 15 players. The union players can contest possession following the tackle, while the league team in possession if fails to score in six tackles should pass on the possession to the opposing team. The union players can keep the possession of the ball for an unlimited number of tackles or until they score.
Rugby is played on a grass pitch that varies in size according to the two games. Rugby union fields are generally 100 metres in length and 60 metres wide. The sidelines are termed touchlines. Each goal line has an H shaped goal post. The familiar oval shaped rugby balls are used in the game, which is not permtted to be thrown forward but which the players have to run with or kick to gain ground. The game is played in two halves of 40 minute each with a 10 minute break at half-time.
Whichever particular Rugby club you are a fan of you can be sure that they will have a stadium to be proud of and one, which must, in common with all clubs, generate some cash during the “off” season. Which of course, makes them the ideal places as venues for weddings, exhibitions and conferences.
Obviously, not everyone is a huge sports fan but visitors will never fail to be impressed with a private guided tour of all the facilities in the stadium, most of which are generally closed to both the public and TV cameras.
So if you are looking for somewhere to hold your next business dinner or if you need a selection of conference rooms Gloucester is a good place to begin your search. Please read here for more information.
