We’ve prepared the ultimate Rugby Quiz, all you need to do is gather together the crew (we’d recommend a Facebook event), download a video conferencing app such as Zoom or Houseparty, appoint a Quizmaster and you’re ready to go!

Why not use it as an opportunity to fundraise for the club but charging a small fee to take part? That way you could even offer a prize - a one-off Rugby Box perhaps?

The quiz consists of 5-rounds, each offering something different so there is something for everyone. 

No phones allowed and any foul play will be punished with a session in the sin bin.

For each question you get correct you will gain one point, the highest score with the most points will win. Best of Luck!
