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 practice 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 (Lights) and Unrestricted (Heavies). The Restricted group are all boys under 115 lbs, whilst the Unrestricted group are all boys over 115lbs. Please note that boys under the weight limit may be included in the unrestricted group. This decision on a boy’s inclusion is made by the coaches based on playing experience, and also his ability to manage himself against potentially larger boys.
 
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 ISEA Championship / Play Day at Klahanie Park on Tuesday, May 15th. For the Championship, a squad of players will be selected (Unrestricted only). Selection will be based on the following criteria: ability, behavior, and attendance to practice.

The
Restricted group will be involved in a play day at the same venue. 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.
