"Whilst the idea of junior rugby posts are nothing new, the challenge has always been that these posts have traditionally been cobbled together with drain pipe type material which once connected is difficult to dismantle, become brittle over time and as a result of them being hard, require rugby post pads to protect kids from injury. You are also limited where these can be used as they require a dedicated fixing (usually a hole in the ground). The result is that coaches, managers don't bother using any posts as it just becomes too hard - that's why they're rarely used (unless set up on dedicated pitches) and as a result they play a rippa rugby style game across a pitch with a few cones to run too and from," explained Roberts.
"Compare now how a more exciting game could look with the ability for coaches (and/or parents) to set up a some posts on a multitude of surfaces (indoor or out), that are taken out the boot of your car, inflated in seconds and are safe to use. I know the kids love a target so wouldn't it be great to see a new game evolve that was more like the real thing (extra points for under the post tries, drop goals, conversions which after all is part of the real game)," he added.
