XRugby is an initiative introduced by World Rugby, and is being used around the World as a flexible format. The game is 7-a-side, with reduced contact, and simplified laws. This fast-paced game is an innovative and exciting way for more players to be involved and suit specific rugby needs. Games are shorter in length compared to 15-a-side, and are played on half a standard sized rugby pitch. The introduction of the Max Zone negates the need for posts, meaning this game can be played anywhere!
In England, the programme will be known as XRugby7s and can be adopted to suit anyone looking for a more flexible opportunity to provide a rugby opportunity. More information about the game can be found here.
