Foam Rugby Ball, Floor Markings and tags (necker)


Mark an area around 2mx2m at each end of the play area.
Place the ball in the middle of one marked zone.
Each cub tucks their tag into the back of their trousers, then split up into 2 teams.


Each team takes it in turns to steal the egg, by team work.
During play the defenders will defend by tagging the opponents necker.
If a player gets into the marked zone still with their necker in place a whistle is blown.

They must now throw the ball to their team members who must put it into their marked zone.

With a lot of players, rules must be kept tight. Using a sin bin for 1 min works well.
