Rugby in the Olympic Games

The IRB is currently lobbying for Rugby Sevens to be included as an Olympic sport, and few can argue that our sport is not an ideal fit with the Olympic ethos.

The IOC is collecting feedback from people around the world on which sports should feature in the Olympic programme, and rugby fans can have their say in the IOC ‘Virtual Congress’ – You can also leave some feedback here as to whether you think rugby should be included, what it would do for the Olympics and what it would do for rugby.

The video below has been produced to communicate the values of rugby and help convince the IOC that it would make a great addition to the Games, and it makes great viewing.
