Team Selection

It is always a difficult choice when we have 2 registered players and can only chose 13 plus 4 subs for each team. Our aim is to develop all of our players and to teach them all the fundamentals of rugby. We aim to give game time to all boys who are training regularly, it is only fair to pick kids who make most of the training sessions. At some fixtures the opposition will be strong, so we will select relatively strong/experienced squads, there is no point in sending a less experienced team to play in a strong fixture and come away discouraged because they are convincingly beaten. We try to match our players against suitable opposition, especially those who are relatively new to the game. Please do not be downhearted if you are not selected, there will be plenty of opportunities to play matches this season, at present we have 29 fixtures (see list below), however it is important from a safety and a confidence point of view that we do not put players into matches against opposition that they are not ready for.
