What is Tackle 5's?
Bay of Plenty Rugby Union won’t be running the regional and Baywide RIPPA Rugby World Cups anymore. Instead, they’re introducing Rugby 5’s to primary school students.
Rugby 5’s is for year 5&6 students, which consists of 5-a-side tackle rugby on a ¼ sized field, with no scrums and lineouts will be launched in the latter half of term 2, 2023 in the form of a number of 1 day regional tournaments (Western Bay x 2, Central Bay and Eastern Bay), culminating in a Southern Chiefs Region Tackle 5’s Championships where the top 4 teams from King Country, Eastern Bay, Central Bay and Western Bay will play in a Southern Chiefs Finals Day. Boys and girls will play in single sexed teams.
Entries for our new Tackle 5's tournament will open to schools in the coming months.
Schools wishing to participate in Tackle 5's will need to undergo the following:
