Play Rugby according to weight and height

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Children should love and respect the game of Rugby, rather than fear injury from oversized players.  The game needs to maintain its sportsmanship by encouraging players of the same height and weight to play against eachother regardless of age.  

Checking height and weight can be done far more easily before a game begins than asking for precious documents. Some schools are refusing to play other schools due to overage players and possible doctored documents.

This system is already used in the first world and could so easily be adopted here in Zimbabwe before a player becomes seriously or even fatally injured.

My 13 year old son was forced to play Rugby last weekend with players who had broken voices and were clearly not under 14.  In this case the game becomes a joke and meaningless with a score of 75 to 5.
