If you’re eight, nine or ten (in year 4 or 5 at school), you are old enough to play mini rugby at your school or local rugby club.
Mini rugby is the next step up from tag rugby, which you may have played when you were younger. Tagging is no longer used, but instead you learn skills like basic tackling, basic scrummaging and basic lineouts. Mini rugby will help you get prepared for the next step which is Midi rugby, and help get you ready for playing rugby as an adult!
Just like tag, mini rugby is loads of fun, but like with any sport, you’ll need to know the rules otherwise you won’t enjoy it nearly as much and you’ll end up giving points away to the other team!
Check out our quick guide to mini rugby and you’ll get more out of playing rugby every time you run out on to the pitch.
