HOW DOES THE COACHING/MANAGEMENT WORK?
Regions are expected to liaise with each of the clubs that form that Regional Team and organise coaches & managers. Between the coaches and management, you are expected to nominate players and select a team with a maximum of 25 players per squad.

PLAYER NOMINATIONS:

SHAW CUP:

  • Team management may nominate no more than 22 players for each fixture.

(Note: There must be 5 Front Row trained forwards named on each team list who have completed a Scrum Factory course or the appropriate training. This is so we can maintain high standards of eight (8) in the scrum and ½ meter pushing throughout the fixture)  

FLEMING SHIELD:

  • Team management may nominate no more than 22 players for each fixture.

 (Note: There must be 5 Front Row trained forwards named on each team list who have completed a Scrum Factory course or the appropriate training. This is so we can maintain high standards of eight (8) in the scrum and ½ meter pushing throughout the fixture)  

CODE OF CONDUCT: 
Coaches, Managers and Parents must remember that the tournament is held for the enjoyment of our young rugby players in the Thames Valley.  Participation, enjoyment, and positive support are the key to the success of this tournament. A full code of conduct can be found in the Junior Rugby Information Handbook, located on the TVRFU website.

PLAYER SAFETY:
Team coaches and managers are responsible for the safety and discipline of their team members. There is every likelihood that there will not be a St John or medical expertise available at any of the venues.  Management must be able to provide the necessary first aid if needed. Coaches & Managers must have done a Small Blacks Course.

GAME TIMES:
All games will be two 20-minute halves.  There will be a half-time break of five minutes.  The appointed Thames Valley Referee is the sole judge of time.

RULES OF RUGBY:
All matches will be played according to the rules of rugby as set by the NZRFU Small Blacks Development Model and adopted by TVRFU. These rules have been played all year and can be found online, or in the TVRFU Junior Rugby Handbook. The format and draw are set by the tournament organizers prior to the commencement of the tournament and all teams must abide by the conditions of play set. Traditionally, the format will be Round Robin with each team playing each other twice.
