As the weather gets colder, a reminder about base layers in junior rugby, including every age group from colts downwards.
Upper body base layers are allowed in both adult and age grade rugby, providing the design and material complies with the criteria set out in WR regulation 12 and Law 4.
Age grade players are permitted to wear base layers leggings/tights, provided they comply with the World Rugby regulation.
The Wold Rugby regulation (quite technical) is available here: http://playerwelfare.worldrugby.org/reg12
