French Mini Rugby- U11 Rules

We are touring France.

Where can I find the French rules for U11's ?

William

I suggest you have a look at the French Rugby Union website and then copy and paste the relevant section and translate though Google.

Simon

Please can you direct me to the relevant section.

I coach youth Rugby in France, what specifically do you need to know ?

Darragh

Are you allowed to kick the ball on the ground (fly hack), take quick tap penalties, 5 man or 3 man scrums, contested scrums ?, play the advantage rule

William,

Can you wait until Sunday or Monday for definitive answers? I coach U7s, and I'm pretty new to that, so I will need to check with my teammate this weekend to be sure.

My first reaction would be

Yes to kicks on the ground

No to quick tap penalties

5 man scrums non-contested and yes to the advantage rule. But I wouldn't bet my life on any of that.

Do you know what towns you'll be visiting on your tour?

 

Darragh

Bayonne

for under eleven, you can kick the ball, play as quick as you want penality

but scrum are not contested and just 3 players, (we don't specialized our players and so the referee (a coach) take the first three players near the ball  to do the scrum)

line out are contested two player and one to throw the ball

excuse my english,hope helping you!

Hi William,

Sorry about the delay, I had some problem getting on to the site. My internet connection has been acting up.

Laurent answered most of your questions, but here you go anyway.

 kick the ball on the ground (fly hack), Yes

take quick tap penalties Yes

5 man or 3 man scrums  3 man

contested scrums No

play the advantage rule Yes

I have heard the ref's have a relaxed attitude to offside / forward passes. It is more important to keep the game moving. Is this correct?

Yes, it's very pronounced with the -7 and -9, but it still exists with the -11 too
