XRugby7s coming to the Island

Douglas RUFC aiming to run summer leagues

A new form of rugby is set to feature on the Island this summer.

XRugby7s is described as being big on enjoyment and low on commitment, and features - as the name would suggest - seven players per side.

But unlike regular sevens, it's played across half a pitch and doesn't use goalposts.

Douglas Rugby Club are behind the initiative, and hope to have a number of different leagues up and running during the summer.
