The manga's story centers on high school students Akira Kariya and Riku Haruma. One day, the new rugby club member Akira gets advice on running from Riku, who used to be absorbed in rugby but gave it up because he lacked the physique for the sport. Akira takes an interest in Riku, and Riku's passion for rugby gradually returns. By joining forces, the pair can play a new tactical game and aim for the top of high school rugby.
The series launched with Erisawa's art and Yano's scenario in Monthly Comic Gene in June 2018. Rihito Takarai (Ten Count, Graineliers) provided the original character designs, and Try Knights Union is credited with the original concept. Kadokawa released the first and second compiled book volumes for the series on March 27.
