Visually impaired (VI) rugby is modelled on traditional rugby and takes elements from both Union and League codes. Similar to touch rugby, the game is 7-a-side and the referee is very vocal, commentating on the game at all times to help all players understand where the ball is and what is happening. The ball itself contains ball bearings to give audible support to the players. The game contains 3v3 uncontested scrums and uncontested lineouts. There is no kicking in open play.
