Not much!. Mouth guard is mandatory but for dear equipement, cleats are about it. Must be steel if you're in the front 5 of the pack (playing prop, hooker or lock). Scrumcap or taping for your ears if you're lock. I wear a padded shirt , padding on chest, upper back and arms under my jersey. I've hit shoulder bone on shoulder bone before and it took forever for my teeth to stop vibrating :-).
Have fun! It's a great game!
