Under 12 focus areas
Building on the safe tackle practiced in the U10s, we now introduce the ruck, maul and uncontested scrum, specifically:
working as a team to retain possession when ball carrier is tackled either on the ground (ruck) or remains standing (maul)
developing supporting play techniques when in possession
forming the front row of the scrum (hooker and two props plus a scrum half) but without any pushing.
