Rugby is great fun to play; it keeps you fit, you get to meet new, ex­cit­ing peo­ple and any­one can play!

Ju­nior rugby is for boys and girls un­der the age of 13 (as of 1st Jan­uary 2012) There are dif­fer­ent grades of rugby de­pen­dant on age and weight. If you are graded in the un­der 6 to un­der 8 you will be play­ing non-tackle rugby, those in higher grades will play full con­tact rugby. If you are a girl you will be play­ing in a girl’s only team. Rippa rugby al­lows peo­ple to play non-tackle rugby us­ing tags that can be pulled (ripped) off to show the tackle in­stead of con­tact. It en­cour­ages ju­niors to share pos­ses­sion be­tween them in a safe game as kick­ing is not aloud. Ju­nior rugby is really fun and is sim­ple to pick up, it helps you with your ball han­dling and pos­ses­sion skills which con­trib­ute greatly to your over­all rugby skills! We think you’ll get a big kick out of it, so get your mates to­gether and come and join for 2013!

Pass it on!
