Its good to be back! Firstly a big thank you to Lindsay and all the parents who have supported HRUFC under 11’s in getting organised and having all of our amazing players back at training.
Over the past few weeks the under11’s and coaches have been working hard to get players familiar with rules and laws of the game. Players have demonstrated with great enthusiasm in being re-introduced to contact again, learning how to make a tackle but also learning how to take a tackle.
Between now and December the under 11’s will be playing under10’s rules. This is because the players have missed a very important year were we would’ve introduced uncontested 3 player scrums and 1 v 1 rucks. After December the rules will change to under 11’s as we continuing with 3 player scrums however hookers can challenge for the ball but no pushing from other players to go forward. Rucks will change slightly again in December, instead of 1 v 1 they become 2 v 2 as 2 players from each side can challenge for the ball and rip it.
To help develop and promote safety in learning the under11’s have decided to train on Wednesdays nights at 6:30 down at Lockwood on the back pitches.
Its great to be back and if you have any further questions about up and coming games please do not hesitate to get in touch with any of the coaches and management.
Huddersfield Under 11’s welcome all players interested in learning the wonderful game of Rugby Union to come down and give it a TRY!
