LAWS OF THE GAME: Rusty Old Demons  VETERANS LAWS


Interested in Golden Oldies Rugby.
All ages 35 years and above  catered for:-

Guide to Age Groups for Coloured Shorted Players:

35 to 59 years Club shorts or red shorts  Players wear red shorts in matches involving this age group to indicate that they do not want to be tackled to the ground or pushed off their feet. A player in red shorts may be “claimed and held” in the spirit of Veterans Rugby but must NOT be tackled to the ground.

 To avoid confusion, teams should avoid using the colours red, gold or purple or colours similar to those for their “normal club shorts”.

60 – 64 years Red shorts  Can be claimed and held. Must not be taken to the ground in a tackle.

65 – 69 years Gold shorts  Not to be tackled or touched. May run with the ball for up to 15 metres in total before passing to a team mate wearing club shorts or red shorts.

70 – 79 years Purple shorts  Not to be tackled or touched. May run with the ball for up to 15 metres in total before passing to a team mate wearing club shorts or red shorts

80 years and older Special Committee shorts  Not to be tackled or touched. May run with the ball for up to 15 metres in total before passing to a team mate wearing club shorts or red shorts.
