From the KZNRU High Schools Rugby Association
RE: PLAYING TIME FOR HIGH SCHOOL MATCHES
At our AGM in November 2014 a decision was taken to continue to play running time for our First XV games.
Correspondence was sent out by Mr. Andre Watson SARU Referees Manager to inform schools of the official times for matches.
I wrote to him requesting that KZN high schools play running time explaining our rational behind our request. I received the following response from him.
The First XV game must be 70 minutes PLAYING TIME and not RUNNING TIME. That the rest of the games are managed and curtailed if there is a need to accommodate a full set of fixtures.
I propose the following times to create uniformity in KZN.
U14 and U15 25 min running time per half
U16 30 min running time per half
Open side 30 min running time per half
First Team 35 min playing time per half
Sin bin is 10 minutes playing time for First Teams and 5 minutes running time for all other teams.
This will begin for all games played from Saturday 28th March 2015.
