Rugby is a key Spring Term sport at Birchfield for our boys and is a very character-building experience for our young players. We enjoy many successes each year on the rugby pitch, both at home on our two dedicated pitches, or away at other schools. In 2018 our rugby teams at U13 and U9 level were unbeaten and the level of performance from Birchfield players was outstanding.
Rugby training begins with tag rugby for our younger years and moves on to full contact rugby at the top of the School, in line with the sport’s strict RFU Regulations and Guidelines for junior players. Training covers all the rules of rugby so that we can tackle positively and safely in matches.
