The Club is very proud to be hosting this year’s Oxfordshire Junior 10s Rugby Tournament for the Under 13 and Under 14 age groups on 11th March

There has been enormous interest shown from clubs across the County and a record number of teams have expressed an interest in attending.
Now is the time for coaches and managers to confirm their team’s participation by completing and returning the official entry form together with the entry fee. Banbury are pleased to have maintained the entry fee at last year’s level of £70 per team.

Entry forms have been emailed to all clubs in the County and you can also download a copy by clicking here. An information pack containing full details and rules of the tournament will be made available shortly.
However, here are a few points to assist clubs with their planning:

The first matches will commence at 10.00am and the finals will be completed by 4.00pm.

  • The maximum number of players per squad is 15 (a team of 10 plus 5 replacements). Each team must consist of a pack of 5 forwards plus 5 backs. Each squad must include 2 specialist front row replacements.
  • Registration of squads must take place before a team can take part in the tournament. The cut-off point for age group qualification is midnight on 31st August/1st September.
  • Every match will be 7 minutes each way with a 1 minute half time. The referee will stop the clock for injuries. Penalties and conversions will be drop kicks.
  • Referees will be provided by Oxfordshire RFU but each team must provide one touch judge for each game that it competes in.

Banbury RUFC looks forward to welcoming entrants to Bodicote Park on Sunday 11th March for a superb day of rugby.
