RFUW announces regional trial dates

02 December 2009

  • January 3 and January 17 set as dates for RFUW regional trials
  • Regional representative programme is an important step on the route to international honours

The RFUW senior regional trials will take place on Sunday, January 3, and the youth regional trials on Sunday, January 17.

The regional representative programme is a vital step on the RFUW player pathway, with regional players regularly progressing to the 44-strong England Elite squad and England U20s squads every year. The RFUW development squad provides another opportunity for regional players to progress through the representative ranks.

In an effort to reduce travel time for matches, venues have been selected which are an equally fair distance between regions. The venues are of high quality and are suitable for hosting this level of event.

In some cases, there will be more than one fixture taking place at a venue, which will make for an exciting experience for all involved. 

The programme has also been condensed into a shorter period, eliminating the conflicts with the education calendar.

For further information on the changes to fees and funding as well as full information on the programme visit the RFUW regional website.
