20 each rep­re­sent­ing their re­gion and a union.

Rippa Rugby is a non­con­tact ver­sion of the sport de­signed for pri­mary-school aged boys and girls. In­stead of tack­ling each other, play­ers must rip the flag from the belt of the ball car­rier. The ob­ject of the game is to score a try by plac­ing the ball with down­ward pres­sure be­hind or on the op­po­nents’ goal line. A try is worth five points.To pre­vent a try be­ing scored the de­fend­ers must rip the flag from the belt of the ball car­rier. This forces the ball car­rier to pass the ball. Six rips against the at­tack­ing team in one set of pos­ses­sion re­sults in the ball be­ing turned over to the de­fend­ing team. Re­serves: Jamie Ship­man, Louis Dee­man
