On a beautiful sunny day, at the downtown Anchorage Park Strip, people gather to enjoy a day of local rugby games. A relatively new sport to the popular culture of the US and Anchorage, Rugby get Support from the local business community, municipality, enthusiasts and the Alaska Rugby Union. Rugby is relatively cheap to participate in, the only fee covers insurance because of the contact nature of the sport. Just need a pair of shorts, plastic nub soccer shoes, and a desire to learn from the sharing coaches and teammates. Injuries can make this sport risky, just like any sport, but dedication to good rugby form greatly reduces the risk and increasing the enjoyment.
