Havelock North Rugby Club - Junior Weights

The age/weight restrictions will apply for the 2022 season. 


Note the players age is defined by their age on 1 January.​​​​​​​

There are very strict age/weight limits for 7th grade and up.  
These must be adhered too. 
There is a dispensation process via the Intercity Junior Rugby Board.
The Committee will determine, if there are any suitable candidates for dispensation.  


There are 3 criteria for dispensation:

  1. Medical reason. (relevant Medical certificate is required)
    • Significant risk of injury – measurable weight or age risk of injury.
  2. No other team within your club to play for.
  3. Exceptional Circumstances.

Also please note:

A player is allowed to Officially weigh in once only – prior to being placed on a team sheet.  If a player does weigh in more than once, the heaviest weigh becomes the Official Weight.
