Touch Rugby

  • taken by Sheryle Lim and Clarissa Gan for Deck the Walls 2016, a project by the Raffles Photographic Society (Year 5-6)

    Touch Rugby is a sport in which players do not tackle each other. Instead, defending players touch their opponents using their hands on any part of the body, clothing, or the ball. Attacking players try to get the ball to the score line before 6 touches, after which possession of the ball changes over. Every time a touch is made, defenders have to back 5 metres before they can proceed to make another touch.

    Touch Rugby is a new sport to most of us, which is exciting as everyone starts off on an equal footing. As cliche as it sounds, all the time and memories made as one team stay with us as a significant part of our Raffles experience even after we graduate.
