Squad Information.....

School Year 3

During the rugby season the Under 8s meet at FRFC on Sunday mornings from 10am through until 12pm for coaching (we meet on the fields behind the clubhouse and through the gates to Oak Farm.).

Some weeks we visit other local clubs for joint training and at regular intervals we enter a team into local tournaments; details of our fixtures for the season can be found on this website too. So please ring or email and check before coming down.

All are welcome throughout the season!

What is Tag Rugby ?

Tag rugby is a fast-moving, non-contact game suitable for boys and girls to play together. Its safe, non-contact nature, combined with the fun and vibrance of the sport, has meant that mini tag is now the RFU's official version of rugby for under-7s and under-8s.

If you are interested in becoming a coach, please contact the manager or coach or an informal chat about the U8s style of coaching and what we are looking for in a coach.

We have a thriving squad of around 20 players this season of both boys and girls. We always welcome additional recruits from children in Year 3 so feel free either to print out this web page and pass on to friends or Please feel free to contact primary coach or team manager

Our main focus is on the children having fun, enjoying ourselves and learning basic rugby skills through tag rugby, the RFU's agreed modified version of the game for this age group.

We are a club run entirely by volunteers so we would welcome help and support from parents in any capacity.

We work on individual skills of:

  • Evasion - side steps, swerving, change of pace.

  • Handling skills - ball familiarity, static passing, moving passing.

  • Tagging (Tackling) - positioning, awareness.

  • Decision Making as an individual

And group skills of:

  • Attack - working together to move forward including passing, evasion and support.

  • Defence - keeping a defensive line, reforming a line, working together.

  • Decision Making as a team.

  • Learning the rules of tag rugby and most importantly, "having fun!"

Player of the Week
Each week the coaches award a player of the week trophy to an individual who has put in a lot of effort, listened and responded well to coaching, supported their team mates and shown good skill and awareness.
