    Junior rugby based on weight classes

    Yeah thanks, I thought that too. I thought there might have been an issue with a kid going from Mini's (U6-U9) up to Junior (U10 up) I seem to remember we had a young fella play up in mini's but the family was told while he could do it in mini's he had to fall back into his age bracket once he...

    Junior rugby based on weight classes

    Hey guys, Quick question. Does anyone know the rules on allowing a kid to play up an age division. I'm talking about letting a kid who plays in under 9's (mini) play in under 10's (junior) Cheerse

    As I understand it, an independent assessor will be at all the Sydney Junior trial matches throughout March to watch all the games and make a decision then. I may be wrong, happy to be corrected.

    Junior rugby based on weight classes

    SS, RE: No team is a higher division. It's a valid question, but I'm not sure home many clubs this would effect. I can't think of many, if any club that enter teams in the Sydney junior comp but have an entire year missing. Not saying it doesn't happen, but I can't think of any. I also think...

    Junior rugby based on weight classes

    Quick question, below is from the press release. Any word on what will be "below or above an acceptable height or weight range"? "From 2018, all Under 10 to Under 15 players deemed to be below or above an accepted height and weight range will now be subject to mandatory assessment by a...

    Correct. I doubt my 9 year old will ever be a Wallaby, but he enjoys playing the game. For him it is purely a great arvo of running around with his mate. If he ever thought there was a real danger of getting seriously hurt, he'd just say he didn't want to do it anymore, which I would be...

    Spot on, 100% agree. This policy should be about protecting the kids, not about making the playing feild a fair contest. The keyword is safety.

    We will have to agree to disagree.... NZ run a weight classed system and have done for years. Seems to works ok for them.....

    For this to work, it must be very clear on the rules, no grey areas. You have to take emotion out of it if they are truly doing this in the jnterest of keeping the game safe for our children. The ARU are all talk and always have been. It will take about 2 rounds until parents see that there are...

    Junior rugby based on weight classes

    I have zero confidence that the ARU will have the balls do really make it work. The worrying line is about the ability to challenge a decision the ARU make. I can just picture a kid thats 20kg heavier than all the other kids gets moved up a age group, his mum and dad say that he wants to play...

    Waratahs vs Crusaders 2014 Super Rugby Grand Final

    Thats a shame, it's lovely out here. Grass is about 27mm for tonights NRL and a light trim tomorrow should see the pitch in tip top shape for the match tomorrow. Now we just need to get rid of that NRL logo on the grass and we will be set!!!

    Waratahs vs Crusaders 2014 Super Rugby Grand Final

    Being a working father who forks out money to take his son to the rugby, I'd be pretty dirty if all I had to do was wait a few days and get the tickets for half the cost. It's a very expensive night out already, and where as you may have heaps of spare cash kicking around, some people aren't as...
