NLD are happy to confirm the first draft of Junior Competition dates for the forthcoming 2016-17 season. We are aware that the competitions start very early in September but we have allowed for 5 rounds per competition which is the maximum that should be required (5 teams in a pool), the majority of the competitions will only require 3 rounds (4 teams in a pool).
More information on Age Grade rugby can be found here.
There are also some upcoming RFU Age Grade Rugby Roadshows that will be aiding the transition for the changes to Age Grade Rugby. It is really important that as many representatives from your club can attend these as possible.
The full calendar is available here, although the most local event will be at Mansfield RFC on 2nd March 2016. These roadshows are open to anyone affected by the changes and all are welcome. If you are planning to attend contact [email protected] to confirm.
Should you be unable to attend the session at Mansfield will also be live streamed on www.youtube.com/englandrugby so you will be able to follow the meeting as it happens and there will be the opportunity to raise questions via twitter and email.
