Classic Wallabies Dean Mumm, Phil Waugh, Lote Tuqiri and David Campese will be hitting the sand to show that rugby is not only the game for all shapes and sizes, but the game for all seasons as well.
Beach Rugby 5s will be on display at Sydney’s Newport Beach on Sunday November 17, with the Wallabies and Waratahs legends on hand to have a go at the fast-paced version of the game, while meeting fans and junior rugby players who will be there to participate.
This FREE public event will feature action aplenty for girls, boys, mums and dads from 12-6pm with matches between Sydney Junior Rugby Union under 11 and under 13 teams plus rugby skill zones, races, kids’ games, face painting and giveaways from major sponsor Wahu throughout.
A host of NSW Waratahs squad members will also be on hand to meet fans and present awards.
Beach Rugby 5s Rules
Beach Rugby 5s is played on the sand, with 5 players in each team, using a straight-forward and simple format, developed to create a fast and exciting display.
A match lasts 10 minutes, and the most significant difference between Beach 5s and the traditional game of Rugby is the 2 Second Rule: “When the ball carrier goes into contact with an opponent or is tackled by an opponent, the ball carrier must pass or release the ball within 2 Seconds”
That’s it! Anyone can play as long as they are happy to get a bit sandy…
We hope to see you there.
