WHICH PROTECTIONS TO PRACTICE RUGBY?
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF PROTECTION IN RUGBY?
Rugby is a contact sport. It intensively solicits the body of the players. It is therefore preferable to wear appropriate protection.
Shocks and traumas are mitigated by wearing pads that protect the most stressed areas. The practice of rugby can thus continue without the body being subjected to excessive pressure. Remember to take your protection with you when you play rugby.
WHAT ARE THE MAIN PROTECTIONS ?
The rugby helmet is an essential protection because the head, a sensitive area par excellence, is regularly subjected to contact during tackles. It is therefore important to choose the right shape and size for your body type. Helmets are often adjustable at the chin. Because they are ventilated, they allow the evacuation of perspiration and therefore remain comfortable to wear throughout the practice of rugby. Several choices of helmets HERE
Shoulder pads will protect the chest, an area directly impacted by tackles and falls. Shoulder pads protect fragile areas such as the shoulders, sternum, collarbone, ribs and chest. Their design in elastic material allows them to be as close as possible to your anatomy. Simply choose the right size for perfect protection. Several choices of shoulder pads HERE
THE MOUTH GUARD
A mouth guard is essential to prevent damage to your teeth and jaw from contact shocks. The vast majority of mouthguards sold on the market are thermo-moldable, which means that you have to boil them in water and then adapt them to your teeth. It is also possible to have your mouthguard custom made by a dentist, but they are much more expensive. Mouthguards have become mandatory in most rugby schools. Several choices of mouthguards HERE.
Of course, there are also protectors to protect other parts of the body.
