Get Into Rugby 12s

What is Get Into Rugby 12s?

12-a-side Rugby adds a ‘number 8’ hindmost player to the scrum and a full back to the team. It is another step in the progression from 7-a-side to 15-a-side and will be most useful to a coach who has a squad of 16 or 17 players. With a number 8 introduced, the players can be introduced to the idea of having a back row player who provides, for the first time, a link between forwards and backs.
