At the U14 age grade, rugby becomes much more expansive and looks a lot more like the game we watch on TV. U14s play 13 vs 13 on almost a full field with the flankers being the 2 players removed from the game. Rules around the tackle and breakdown are similar to those of the older age grades with rucks being fully contested. The set piece is modified for safety reasons as players get used to the scrum and lineout.
Coaching focuses on the technical core skills of catch/pass, tackle, ball in contact and rucking as well as the tactical skills of attacking space in attack and defense. Of course the core values of rugby(Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship) are always emphasized
