Can you add value to this team? by David Clarke

I am not sure of the age group of these teams, but I am guess around the 10 to 11 year old age range.

Some fairly typical rugby going on here, with some good passages of play and some not so good.

What is shows is the shape of the game at this age range. Rucks are appearing, but not really forming, and players are spreading across the pitch. There is little lateral space created. That is unless either a player runs sideways or, on a rare occasion, there are several passes.

I think we need be clear about our expectations of the shape of the game and adjust our coaching accordingly. In which how could you add significant value to these teams?

Ball looks wrong size —> handling errors.
