RFU’s Head of Age Grade review half a game rule: Gains and challenges

Mark Saltmarsh, who is Head of Education and Age Grade Rugby at the RFU, tells us how the “Half a game” rule (HGR) has worked so far, and what have been the challenges.

Mark gives an honest assessment of the current roll-out, with plenty of practical ways to make it work for all clubs.

We covered:

  • The principles behind the rule
  • Why have a rule when good coaches should be doing this already
  • Some of the main issues that have caused problems: cup games, keen players becoming demotivated
  • The role of sanctions
  • How conversations before games make it easier to implement
  • How HGR is being integrated into courses.
