Junior’s is where things get a little serious. Games are still modified for each age-group, so players can safely learn new elements of the sport.
Teams are individually graded, and play in the Sydney Junior Rugby Competition against other teams in their grade from across metropolitan Sydney.
HVRC U10s and U11s
U10s and U11’s play 12-a-side for 2x 20 min halves, on a field slightly smaller than a full field. Line-outs are contested, but lifting isn’t allowed. 6 players contest the scrum with a maximum 1m push.
U12s move to a 15-man squad playing on a full field with 25 min halves. Still no lifting in the line-outs, and scrums move to a full 8 bodies.
U13s to opens play under World Rugby U19 Laws of the Game, and the Australian Rugby Union Australian Under 19 Law Variations.
