Is it a rough sport?
Although underwater rugby is a contact sport, the water is an excellent cushion for impact so it is difficult to get injured. We wear waterpolo caps with ear protectors to prevent burst ear drums. Underwater rugby rules prioritise safety so we make sure we stick to the rules and teach players how to tackle effectively and safely.
