Touch rugby is a version of rugby in which players do not tackle in the usual way, but instead touch their opponents using their hands on any part of the body, clothing, or the ball.
Eagles use touch rugby as a training activity for the traditional rugby union and as a non-contact variant in schools. In addition to tackles being replaced by touches, laws are simplified to remove elements such as scrums, rucks, mauls, line-outs and kicks.
Each team of six players attacks the other team's try-line and keeps the ball for a total of six 'touches' (tackles). At the end of these six touches, if the team has not scored possession passes to the opposition.
