“We just have the best time, full of fun, playing rugby outdoors in all weathers, all year round.”

We know it’s also incredibly important to maintain mental and emotional well being of children, as well as engaging and developing physical activity, and Muddy Knees achieves this in abundance.


Roger founded Muddy Knees kids’ Rugby in 2013 in an effort to pass on his passion for rugby. Having played for many years including for the Royal Navy 1st VX for, Roger firmly believes that developing rugby skills and playing team sports at the earliest opportunity is crucial to a child’s successful development.

Jody has joined us in 2020 from South Africa, where he has worked since 2010 in physical education for children. Jody is trained in early childhood development and has been a full time football and rugby coach since 2015. Jody has coached thousands of children over the course of his career to date within school and private settings. We are thrilled to welcome Jody onboard and into the MKKR Family.


2 – 3½ years old: This is our youngest group and is aimed at having fun, but geared around listening, holding the ball in 2 hands and following basic instructions. A massively rewarding group especially when you see the little ones smiling faces at the end of the session.

3½ – 5 years old: This is our middle group and starts to encourage independent thought and making decisions. This group builds on physical movements and mental thought processes as well and teamwork. The games are multi-dimensional meaning it does challenge the child but this hopefully brings out confidence when they start to understand and become more skilled.

5 – 7 years old: This is our oldest group and starts to focus on specific rugby skills. It involves complex games, activities and drills, and develops quick decision making, agility, co-ordination all geared around speed of action from a physical perspective.

“We have created a range of games and activities that challenge children and introduce them to principles such as teamwork, respect and discipline in fun-filled sessions.
