    The Western Cape schools is probably the highest population of young grassroot rugby talent coming through in a per square metre measurement in world rugby. Rugby as the main sport have a massive influense on our young kids and you only have to look at the Newlands support at all rugby matches to realise this. This however starts at the very bottom of grass roots to get the rugby culture going. Thats where the parents and family get involved in the sport supporting them. Myself love to watch our 7 year olds getting stucked into a rugby match, it may look like rugby ballet between the four lines but the supporting parents and specially the mothers is something to treasure and to value. This can go horribly wrong when the parents dont understand the true values and spirit of rugby (war on field , friends after the match ended).

    Attached a code of conduct signed by the main prymary schools principals and distributed to parents of the main rugby schools of the Western Cape.

    Feel free to use it in your area.

    Simple and straight to the point. Also good to point out to parents that there are channels, through their own schools, to follow if they have legitimate grievances, before they start complaining to other schools or unions.
