Appropriate Studs

There is a massive focus this year on making sure that the players are wearing boots with studs that are appropriate and legal for playing rugby. Referees have been instructed to check for illegal studs before a game begins and if a player does not have the correct studs on their boots they will not be allowed to play. Legal rugby studs need to be 10mm at the top as per the graphic below:

Here are some general guidelines:

  • If your boots have screw-in metal / plastic / plastic & metal studs they MUST meet the World Rugby standards (10mm at the top as per the graphic above)
  • As a general rule Nike and New Balance don’t make rugby boots and if you have these boots you are highly likely to have to swap out the studs that came with them for rugby studs
  • Adidas soccer boots are also likely to require their studs to be swapped out as well, but Adidas do make rugby boots and they meet the standards
  • Brands like Canterbury,  Patrick, Asics and Mizuno also make rugby boots that meet the standards
  • Boots with moulded plastic studs will be allowed (though in general they are not recommended as when we get into winter they don’t give much traction on wet rugby pitches)
  • Boots with blades will definitely not be allowed and as are also not allowed on the All Weather Pitch in Clontarf
  • Boots that are missing one or more studs will also not be allowed.

Here is an example we’ve been given of boots with legal studs:

And here is an example of illegal studs:

Safe Rugby:

We strongly encourage all coaches, players and parents to have a better understanding of concussion.  Concussion can pose a significant risk to the well being of players if not managed effectively.  Please use the following link  to the IRFU website  www.irishrugby.ie/concussion and fimilarise yourself with the signs, symptoms and management of concussion.  I would ask that you share Junior Player video with your child to ensure that they too understand concussion.

Code of Ethics: 
Parents please read, discuss with your child & abide by the clubs code of ethics – See this link https://www.clontarfrugby.com/youth-mini-rugby/code-of-ethics/

Please get involved. Positive encouragement for all the children is vital, most players want to impress their parents, so please try to impress the children. Never be negative.

NOTE: If any parent/guardian has an issue or observation regarding their child please bring notice immediately to a coach.
