Cambridge Under 14 Boys

Welcome to the home page of the U14’s, we offer youth rugby to players who are in school Year 9.

At CRUFC we believe rugby is a fantastic sport!  Built around the RFU’s Core Values of; teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship and our goal is to teach players the core techniques and skills of rugby in a fun and inclusive environment.  We aim to play fast free-flowing rugby which keeps the ball in play and as such training primarily revolves around running, passing and support play.

During the season all the players will be involved in matches against other rugby clubs within the region as well as participating in festivals playing against clubs from further a field.

The key elements of the Under 14’s Rules of Play are:

  • Team numbers: a maximum of 15-a-side (key change)
  • Maximum pitch size: 100 metres x 70 metres (full size pitch)
  • Ball Size: 4
  • Maximum minutes each half: 25
  • Contested 8 man scrum – the No.8 can pick up the ball from the back of the scrum (key change)
  • Introduction of the uncontested lineout (key change)

Training Times

The rugby season starts on the first Sunday in September and finishes in April.  Training takes place at Grantchester Rd, Cambridge, CB3 9ED on Sunday mornings between 1100 – 1230. Free parking is available at the ground and please arrive approximately 15mins beforehand to ensure a prompt start.  


We are always looking to expand our playing squad and welcome all new players from complete beginners upwards.  If you are in Year 9 and would like to try rugby for the first time or build on previous experience please get in touch.
