    Re: U12 regs and jackling

    Interesting the Welsh allow it but not the English. Have the Welsh banned box kicking this season as well?



    Any player can pick up and carry from the ruck in the u12's. From what I can see the...

    [Mini/Midi] Re: U12 regs missing clause?

    Excellent, I think we are doing the same. Last year the U12's did pick up and carry from a ruck so the rewording of the rule appears to now allow running after the ball has been ripped.

    Having to...

    [Mini/Midi] Re: U12 regs missing clause?

    Or does that rule mean they can only pick up and carry if no ruck or the ruck has been cleared out?

    [Mini/Midi] Re: U12 regs missing clause?

    I think they really mean iii in the new rules. The first rule has been removed which forced the ball being passed after it is ripped and the reference has not been updated.

    My understanding is...

    [Tackle] Re: Tackle holding on a ball

    I had this a few weeks back in a junior game. BC was being ripped and was about to loose the ball so he dropped to one knee. I waited a second to see what happened before calling tackle release, but...

    Re: Other than from a restart....

    41 year olds? You're being to generous to some of my coach's! In all seriousness the kids do as they are told with a little concept of the rules further than the obvious questions that come from...

    Ripped or held up?

    Odd one today. Red attacking drives over try line with a blue defender trying to rip the ball and he gets pushed back. Red tries to ground the ball, and has dropped to floor, but the ball is ripped...

    Re: A lot of U11 questions...

    Not a lot wrong with that. If the game has stopped for a free kick, free pass or scrum and there is something wrong I will usually get them to replay it. If it's persistent I will escalate and take...

    [Law] Re: New Referee looking for tips

    As a new ref myself I can only offer what is working for me at the moment:

    Start at a junior level. I started at under 10's just when rucking and mauling had been introduced this let me build an...
  14. Re: Two questions, kicking and elbow's for under 11's

    Thanks, I'm aware of that so, maybe my real question is when does protecting the ball with the ball carying arm become a fend? Or am i over thinking this and any push with the forearm is a fend.
  15. Two questions, kicking and elbow's for under 11's

    Under 11's - Age grade rugby.

    So start of a new season, I think I have the rules nailed but just want to check.

    1) Kicking and the ball does not go directly into touch but bounces on the pitch...

    [Mini/Midi] Re: u11 Kicking from breakdown

    I do similar as well, however this season the boys I have not had to enforce it yet. When you do pull it back do you hand over possession as well for a free kick? For me it can be dependent on the...

    [Maul] Re: U11 maul

    That is correct within 5 seconds of it being formed. In reality the ball is ripped or passed off before then or maul is stationary anyway.
  18. Re: Under 10 Rucking and stealing the ball when not engaging

    Yes under reds foot, red BC was on the ground, but no opposition to ruck with. In under 9's there is no ruck, only tackle. At the tackle offside the opposition can't compete for the ball and must...
  19. Re: Under 10 Rucking and stealing the ball when not engaging

    Thanks Flish, that's cleared up in my mind it was the right choice. Your right the ruck is narrow with only one v one and some of the kids do try there luck with it. I like the thinking that there is...
  20. Re: Under 10 Rucking and stealing the ball when not engaging

    Yes this is RFU under 10 rules. In an ideal situation red could/should of picked up the ball as there was no ruck but instead protected the ball. Blue instead of binding on to form the ruck came...
  21. Under 10 Rucking and stealing the ball when not engaging

    So situation is red tackled, red support is in a rucking position over the Ball and the ball is presented correctly to red side. Red scrum half is a little slow and blue has come down the side and...
  22. Re: 2 questions: Pushing players over and being off your feet to pass

    No SH is dropping to his knees and then passing from that position. As you can imagine the rucks and tackles are very messy in this age group with players going off there feet more times than not. I...
  23. 2 questions: Pushing players over and being off your feet to pass

    Afternoon all,

    A couple of queries about some habits our players (U 10's) have picked up and I'm penalising them for at the moment as it does not look right rather than its against a rule I can...
