Rugby for Restricted (Lights) and Unrestricted (Heavies)

The rugby team is open to all boys who have an interest in developing their rugby playing ability. Team practices and games will have an emphasis on promoting and improving a variety of rugby skills through game related activities in a fun and enjoyable way.

Interested boys are to be placed into two groups; Restricted and Unrestricted. The Restricted group are all boys under 115lbs, whilst the Unrestricted group are all boys over 115lbs or more experienced players.

Every effort will be made to give a player appropriate playing time during the season, as we will be playing a number of festivals at other Independent Schools.

The season concludes with the Play Day at St. George’s Junior School on Tuesday, May 12th. It is yet to be finalized what the format for the Unrestricted group will be for this day. The Restricted group will be involved in a play day. All boys who have attended regular practice and games will be selected for this play day. During the play day, the school will be participating in a number of games against other Independent Schools.
