Lately, my school side has been struggling to pull together an entire XV. In fact, last week we only had 5 people turn up, which can't be good, as we can't even be entered into a game of 7s. And so the idea is that as of this week, all years are going to be merged into one side, and hope that we can have 15 men turn out. This question isn't directly about me, but my 12-year-old brother. If the idea is to fill numbers in, and we didn't have a Scrum-Half, where he plays, I'm scared he'll be targeted during games, as he's a physically small presence, (Certainly both the lightest and shortest, and not particually nippy to make up for it.) and it's not even up to me to defend him, as coming in from Fullback to cover the Scrum-Half in case he gets nailed isn't a particually good idea. Any advice as to how I could get round having a family member in A&E, without making someone pull out?
