Yes they do. They use foam padded ones so that no damage is caused to other players during contact. They are specially designed for Rugby because of this quality. They are used as they provide protection to the shin: therefore protecting the player from stamping whilst on the ground.

No you don't have to. However, many Hookers ( number 2 ) have worn these due to the amount of opposing hookers hitting then on the front of the shin whilst striking for a ball

In general shin pads are NOT worn
