Under 8s new rules

16 posts in this topic

Was watching an under 8s game on sunday and i noticed a few rule changes,

No scooting from dummy half

No hand over after knocking on

no handover after going into touch

Can anyone explain why these rules have come in and are there any more that i missed...Thanks..

You could scoot on the last tackle at the start of the season, the new rules were being used at the roose v askam under 8s yesterday.

Cheers rob, just hope it works, general concensus yesterday was it spoilt the game a bit. some players were tackling others into touch and then could not understand why there was not a turn other like at the start of the season. does this apply to the under 8s only or are the 10s included in this?

A massive step backwards. To much tinkering with the rules which will confuse the kids when they move up. We played BI on Sunday and both sides numbered their players up, gave each child equal opportunities and it was a cracking game. If the game is refereed and coached in a fair manner then there is no need for the ridiculous rule changes. Put some of these kids in a small sided game and they will run riot. The more bodies the harder to get through it becomes. Just my opinion but im opposed to the rule changes as I think at Dalton we coach our kids and referee our games in a fair and consistent manner. By this I mean that we offer opportunities for kids of any ability regardless of which team they play for. I have only come across 1 game where their referee & coach were happy using the same kids to do all the damage and left the less able kids stood around. Every other club has made sure that all abilities were catered for.

Its confusing the kids now gary, they learn the rules in september then come march rhey have to learn more, then when they move up an age group its all change again for them. no wonder kids pack in and turn to football.

Dont need rule changes if the games are refereed fairly and the coaches are fair. Totally agree Gaz that it confuses them. My lad will have a field day in a small sided game which, imo, will do him no good at all!

Hawcoat Storms Under 8's have a fantastic set up and our kids loved that game.

I still think that there is supposed to be a handover after going into touch, the rule states:

14.

All infringements will result in a hand over to the non-offending team at the place

the infringement occurred except in the following situations:

If the ball goes into touch the restart will take place 5 metres in from touch opposite entry

point and 5 metres from the try line.

I think the rule stating that a set of six will be completed regardless of errors refers to knock ons, forward passes etc.

At marsh hornet we believe it taking part that counts not winning it about taking apart and giving ever body equal game time all that training play on match day .

some of the new rules may benfit our club by smaller side games helps us to kept hold of players we seem to get 12 's then loss players due not having enough

to play games. the kids move to other club because we do not have enough this then has knock on effect every year .

so 1 of the rules may help our teams but still not sure about them . i total agree gary If the game is refereed and coached in a fair manner then there is no need for the ridiculous rule changes.
