TOUR EXPECTATIONS
Tourists are reminded that embarking on-tour carries with it certain responsibilities and that they
are representing themselves, their friends and their family in addition to the MJRU and its proud
history. As players representing MJRU, it is important to adhere to the following expectations so that
you maximise your own chances of performing well on the field, you obtain all the benefits of
participation in activities off the field that undoubtedly will provide lifelong memories, and finally, you
bring added respect to the high reputation that our great club enjoys.

General..

Players will remain with the Tour Group at all times. There will be no exceptions.
In public be well presented, courteous and respectful of other members of the public, their
property, their culture, beliefs and traditions. Remember that others will judge you and the
entire group by your attitudes and actions. Offensive language will not be tolerated.
Abide by the decisions made by the Tour Leaders as they will be made for the wellbeing and
safety of all players on the tour.
Be considerate of others; place the needs of the team as the first priority.
Be responsible for your gear at all times.
Use your manners at all times, particularly when staying with your billet families.
Be courteous and respectful while in the homes of billet families. Respect and take care of
their property, clean up after yourself, make your bed, offer to help, leave your belongings in
a tidy manner and remember to use the magic words please and thank you.
Talk to your Tour Leader if there is anything that is worrying you.
iPhones, iPads, iPods are permitted at specified times.

Game day

Play for enjoyment, not just to please your parents or coach.


Play by the laws of the game.
Never argue with the referees decision. Let your captain ask any necessary questions.
Control your temper no mouthing off, abusive language or violence.
Work equally hard for yourself and for your team. Your teams performance will benefit and
so will your own.
Be a good sport. Applaud all the good play, whether it is done by your team or your
opponent. Be modest in success and gracious in defeat.
Shake hands with all of the opposing team at the conclusion of the match, and clap them off
in the spirit of good sportsmanship. Thank the match officials.
Treat all players as you yourself would like to be treated. Do not interfere with, bully or take
advantage of any player.
Treat everyone equally regardless of sex, disability, ethnic origin or religion.
Remember that the goals of the game are to have fun and improve your skills.
Co-operate with your coach, team mates, referee and opponents, for without them you do
not have a game.

TRAVEL GROUPS and BILLETING


To manage the large group of boys throughout the tour and to ensure they have the best care
possible, the tour party has been split into smaller groups. Each group has a designated
tour official as the Group Leader who is responsible for the organisation, management and welfare
of their group. Each boy is to report to his designated Group Leader for all travel, sightseeing and
activities before heading home with billets and once returned from the billets. The boys are asked to
make their Group Leader the first point of contact for any questions or concerns. Similarly, parents
wishing to contact their son should do so through the Central Contact Number.
At each destination the boys will be accommodated with a host family, their billet. The boys will be
with at least one of their team mates and will be paired with a different team mate at each
destination. The Group Leaders will keep track of where their boys are staying and hold all contact
details for the billet. As outlined in the Tour Expectations, please be courteous and respectful while
in the homes of billet families. Respect and take care of their property, clean up after yourself, make
your bed, offer to help, leave your belongings in a tidy manner and remember to use the magic
words please and thank you. After games please ask your billet family politely if you could do
your own washing and drying or if they could help you to do so.
On day one, please report to your Group Leader at 5.15am at Keirle Park for the 5.30am departure.

U/12s PLAYBOOK
PHILOSOPHY - Without the ball, we communicate, move up fast as one, make strong effective
tackles and then compete hard for the ball. With the ball, we run straight and hard at spaces to
attract defenders, constantly look for opportunities to keep the ball alive and recycle the ball quickly,
then move the ball wide to space and use our speed.
With each play and call outlined below, it is important that every player understands the reasoning
behind the call and their individual role within that play.
TEAM SHAPE CALL
A ball
B ball
C ball
Milk
Red
Marlins

Waratahs
Reds

BACKS PLAYS
Jack and Jill

LINEOUTS
Manly

DESCRIPTION
Pick and gos by the forwards, aimed at lazy ruck defenders. Or when we
need to restart.
Wide forward runners off the 9, aiming at the weak shoulders of opposition
10.
Forward runners off the 10, aiming at holes in the centres.
Pocket runner on inside of number 9.
Backs ball, move it to space.
The standard pattern of play, continue in same direction until RED or
Raiders is called. Will be combined with an A, B or C. Marlins B means
continue in same direction with forward runners off the halfback. Loose
forwards responsible for first breakdown, tight forwards take the first carry.
A pattern variation from an attacking lineout, centre field hit up by forwards
then 10, 12 and 15 switch to the short side.
A play from a scrum where we use the right hand blind side, 8 picks up gives
to 9, 15 and 14 in support.
DESCRIPTIONS
A switch option on the inside with a straight running and overs running
option on the outside.
A run around and pick up outside men.
A block runner going straight and a sweeper running behind off the 10.
A block runner going straight and a sweeper running behind off the 12.
Switch in direction of play to the backs during phase.
Inside pass from 10.
DESCRIPTIONS
Call three Clubs including Manly, when we say Manly determines where
the ball goes. If Manly is called second, the ball goes to front of lineout and
forwards take it into contact, pick and go until RED is called. (eg: Gordon,
Manly, Parra) If Manly is called third, ball goes to the back of lineout and it
is passed out to the backs. (eg: Gordon, Parra, Manly)

Penalty/Free kick

Kick

Restarts

DESCRIPTION
Get to the last mans feet straight away, look at opposition players and
match up our numbers, mark up on a man, point and talk who you have got,
call HOLD and when the ball comes out call HIT, move forward fast onto
your man.
Core focus, small steps on approach, get feet and body in close, shoulder
contact, arm wrap and hold, leg drive, finish on top, jump to feet and
contest the ball.
Get lower than your opponent, initial contact must be aggressive with
shoulders, grab a handle and drive your legs, go past the ball.
Carry the ball tightly into contact in the non-contact arm, hit the space
between defenders, lower your body height and accelerate hard into
contact, keep the legs pumping, when tackled look for offload or pop
opportunity if none then make a strong movement to place the ball with
long arms and away from the opposition.
Tap and go attack space or use tap 1, 2 or 3.
Pass the ball twice away from the turn over and attack the space out wide.
DOWNTOWN When under pressure in own 22m kick out or to gain
territorial advantage from our own half we will kick long to space, chase all
kicks hard in one defensive line. (Attacking kicks are a last resort, only if
defence is up fast and running the ball is not working, call GREEN)
Kicking: Number 1 is short, Number 2 is deep
Receiving: Spread in scrum formation opposing the forwards, inside backs
up outside backs deep.

CHARITY

Angelman Syndrome (often abbreviated AS) is a severe neurological


disorder characterised by profound developmental delays, problems
with motor coordination (ataxia), balance and epilepsy. Individuals with
AS do not develop functional speech. Angelman Syndrome affects all
races and both genders equally.
People living with AS require life-long care, intensive therapies to help
develop functional skills and improve their quality of life and close
medical supervision often involving multiple medical interventions.
The Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics Australia (or
FAST) is an organisation of families and professionals dedicated to
finding a cure for Angelman Syndrome and related disorders through
funding research, education, and advocacy. The Foundation is
committed to assisting individuals living with Angelman Syndrome to
realise their full potential and quality of life. We are confident that our
goals are now within reach and together, with your help, we will change
lives.
