This year sees the launch of the new NLD U15 Girls Development XV which will be run alongside the NLD U15 Girls team.  Neil Clack, NLD W&G Chairman, explained; ‘We are really pleased to be able to offer more Girls within NLD the chance to develop their game at this level.  We hope that by running the Development XV this will allow a smoother transition into the U15’s squad giving these players valuable experience and opportunity’.

Following on from the success of last year’s inaugural U13 Programme the Girls will once again feature and the squad will have 3 development sessions throughout the Autumn with plans to arrange a fixture in the New Year.

NLD Girls U18 Coach Roy Reeve said ‘Girls rugby is on the rise in NLD and we are looking forward to another successful campaign this year’.
