The Rugby Football Union have launched O2 Touch, which aims to get more people playing touch rugby.
As part of the promotion, they have created The Untouchables, the world’s most exciting touch rugby team. Featuring a mix of male and female athletes including Tim ‘Livewire’ Shieff from affiliate organisation, Storm Freerun.
Touch is a non-contact form of Rugby where tackles are replaced by touches. Often played informally, appealing to sports enthusiasts and those looking for an alternative way of keeping fit through a fun game, which needs only a ball and a few jumpers for corner flag.
This demonstrates the versatility of Parkour/Freerunning and how the fundamental skills and techniques can be transferred to many other sports & activities.
