What is Tartan Touch?

Tartan Touch is Scottish Rugby’s Fun, Simple and Social version of non-contact rugby. With only 8 simple rules it is a great game for all abilities and all ages.

How to play Tartan Touch

The aim is to touch the ball down over opponent’s goal line. To do this, you need to keep possession by avoiding being touched.

Possession lost if:

  • Touched 6 times
  • Ball leaves the pitch
  • Ball passed forward, dropped forward, or kicked forward
  • Foul play by team in possession

When touched:

  • Offload within 2 steps or 2 seconds – No offside from the offload
  • Place ball on ground – Offside line created
  • Must be passed away by touched player or a teammate
