Important update

The Age Grade Competition Review is complete. see attached document here showing the principles. We hope to bring you more as soon as it's released. See also RFU webpage which has been set up to cover all the details.

Remember the game will be:

  • Player-centred
  • Development driven
  • Competition supported

Nowhere in there does it mention Clubs/Coaches filling trophy cabinets.

It's all about inclusivity - no prima donnas, no one is too weak to play either.
