“Rugby is a hooligans' game played by gentlemen.” 
Winston Churchill

History of rugby 1823 - A commemorative stone at Rugby school claims that 16-year-old student William Webb Ellis, "with a fine disregard for the rules of football...first took the ball in his arms and ran with it, thus originating the distinctive feature of the rugby game.”

Rugby is a sport played in over 120 counties by over 5 million people. Rugby continues to grow in popularity worldwide, and the sevens version of the game will make its Olympic début in Rio De Janeiro in 2016. Since 2007, participation has grown by 33% in Africa, 22% in South America and 18% in Asia and North America. Rugby, both Rugby Union and Rugby League versions, are one of the most popular sports in the UK.

Rugby like many modern sports runs like any other business. There are many job functions on and off the pitch and they encompass all “normal” fields of employment. From office admin to sport improvement, hospitality to fitness training and medical. In fact you could look at a job in rugby as gaining employment in a large corporate organisation that just happens to be involved in sport.
