For over a decade, the Knights have been running different forms of touch rugby proving that this toned-down version of conventional rugby league is an exciting sport that appeals to the masses and can be played regardless of experience, ability, gender or age.


The emphasis of the sport is placed on running, agility, and ball handling. Its strength as a sport is how inclusive the game can be. In the past, we have had families take to the pitch, ex-players, current players, and players new to rugby league coming together to play on the same pitch.


Aside the ease of play and its inclusive nature, there are several other benefits of playing touch. The game offers a fun, practical way to stay fit, it also boosts bone and muscle strength and body coordination all in a fun, social atmosphere added with a great way to make new friends.


The key difference between X-League and other variants is that the Tackle is affected by making a touch on the ball. The game is easy to learn, and easy to play with new participants welcomed.
