2. What do I need to bring?

At first, all you need is an open mind and a get-stuck-in attitude! 
 
In the beginning, you won't need a mouthguard – but rugby is a contact sport so you will eventually need one once you learn how to tackle!
 
Otherwise, bring football/rugby boots or sneakers, a water bottle, and clothes that won't tear easily or which you don't mind if they do tear.

3. Games

To play games in a WRC shirt, you need to:
  • Pay the club membership fee (will be sent by invoice to the email in your profile)
  • Get insurance covering rugby (either the option offered by the federation or a personal one)
  • Get a license from the Finnish Rugby Federation (https://finland.rugby/license-and-insurance/)
  • Complete the Rugby Ready online test: https://rugbyready.worldrugby.org/ and send the Rugby Ready certificate to warriors@finland.rugby
  • Optional: Complete the Rugby Laws online test: https://www.world.rugby/the-game/laws/home
 
The club provides rugby jerseys, shorts, and socks for games. The player is responsible for their boots, which need to be suitable for rugby (either plastic-studded football/rugby boots or metal-studded football/rugby boots) and a mouthguard.
 
WRC plays its home games at Myllypuro grass field 1 (Myllytontunpolku 1, 00920 Helsinki). For away games, we travel by bus or our own cars if the journey is not too long.
