I am about to join a local rugby club, strictly amateur. I used to play soccer, but that was many years ago. Anything I should now about playing rugby? I do workout about 3-4 times per week as it is. I meet with the coaching staff next week, as well as practice starts next week. I saw a website and the "protection equipment" is confusing. I mean I see head, shoulder and chest protection, but you guys don't wear "cups". Is the impact just in the upper body area? And, can regular soccer boots work, or do I need to buy special rugby boots? I know alot of questions, but I appreciate any assistance.
