When can you rip the ball in U10s game?

I believe it's only when a maul and not 1 on 1 tackle. And what games can you play to demonstrate this?

Cant rip the ball at any time sorry , WRU pathway states no mauling penalty against offending team .

We play to new U10 rules in Derbyshire. we travel to yorkshire, chesire and Lancs and we believed that ripping was allowed at any stage of play whether 1 v 1 or mini maul but the player must pass the ball through the air once he/she has ripped it. Is this not the case?

Correct - ripping is allowed.

"b) Where the ball has been ripped from the ball carrier - attacker or defender -

the ball must be passed away from the contact area."

sounds like a better idea ,heres a link to our pathway rules www.wru.co.uk/downloads/100849_Rugby_Pathway_Book.pdf.

Hi Adrian thanks for the info I am from Wales myself but coach in England now. I think the rules must be different for WRU. I believe ripping is allowed in England we have been victims of it in recent games turning over ball to the opposition. I just wanted to give my boys permission to do it back. Thanks Cirks looks like we need to encourage the guys to try and rip the ball and then pass it out. Thanks
