Would you like to play international rugby for Wales?


Many people ask how deaf you need to be, to be eligible to play deaf rugby.  Well, you don't need to be profoundly or totally deaf to qualify.  You only need a combined average hearing loss of 25db or more in both ears.


This is approximately a minimum hearing loss in both ears or a moderate hearing loss in one ear but normal hearing in the other.


Discover more about deaf rugby and to see whether you could qualify by contacting Communications Officer Geraint Morgan here.
