Never heard of it; I think someone may be pulling your leg. Sheep have short thin legs, the legs couldn't support the weight of a rider and the rider couldn't keep his own feet off the ground.
Possibly you may be mixed up with Afghanistan, where polo is or was a played the usual way on horseback, with a sheep or goats head for a ball.

well i don't think it infolves riding sheep lol i think the sheep is the ball of sorts not a real sheep just a wool bag stuffed with rags or somthing saldust what ever to look like a sheep i found the mention on a sort of dead site and here are the sole posts mentioning sheep rugby Steve Smith wrote:

Here in the good city of Eoforwick we have played this wonderful game for two generations... the original sheep "Murphy" and his offspring "Also Murphy". ;)
The rules for playing on foot as we see it:
Establish two poles a goodly jog apart - each team claims one (colored flags help) Place sheep in middle in circle Scrum for sheep Run toward oponent's pole Oponent try to grab sheep and run it round the other way
This discription to me seemeds incomplete what is the goal and are their spacific rules? how many aside for teams and does any thing go?
