No tackles, rucks, or mauls in rugby’s new playbook


What happens when physical proximity is off limits for the ultimate contact sport? Rugby players will find out when they head back to the pitch next week. Swiss rugby CEO Veronika Muehlhofer has put together a lockdown exit plan that starts with players kicking a ball around, taking care to stay at least two meters apart. No passing will be allowed for now, and players can only train in groups of five or less.
