Oman Rugby - Rules & Regulations of the game

Laws and regulations

Rugby in Oman is governed by the Oman Rugby Committee (ORC), which is responsible for promoting the game and setting the rules and regulations in the Sultanate. We strive to ensure the highest levels of safety, fairness and fun for all participants. The ORC also provides training and development opportunities for coaches, players and referees. We look to provide a platform for Omani rugby players to compete and represent the country at international tournaments. The Oman Rugby Committee is dedicated to providing a safe and enjoyable environment for all rugby players, no matter their age or experience level.

All Rugby activity requires management to maintain the values. ORC work closely with ASIA Rugby, World Rugby and the Federation of International Touch to ensure the game is managed inline with their vlaues aswell as that of the Sultanates laws.
