Reduce Numbers in rucks

Hi. I coach a B level under 12 team at school with very mixed abilities. All the other teams we play put all there forwards into the rucks and therefore we have to, to win the ball. Is there a way I can combat this with a few less players in the ruck?

Yes first work on ABCs agility before contact to win the collision. Basic terms use footwork before contact. Then encourage players to long present this gets the ball further away from the jackler and narrows the gate have the first 2 players actually clear out and the have one seal the ruck off. Low body position binding onto the tackled player.
