Regional U17 10s

Looking well ahead this, but worth thinking about - and in particular hearing your views.

On 29th April there is the first ever "official" RFUW Regional U17 10s tournament. In fact there will be ten tournamnets spread around the country and our "local" one (for East Region and North London) will be at Hemel.

However, RFUW have made it very clear that you do not have to enter your local event. In fact they have made a point of suggesting that clubs can enter ANY of the regional competitions.

Given the rumblings about our always playing the same teams one thing we might consider is entering the East Midlands 10s, which are due to be held at Aylestone St James in Leicester. In terms of journey time Hemel is about 40 minutes away, Leicester about twice that - but in practice the latter is normally a pretty clear run up the A1, which is more than can be said for trips to Hemel....

Who might we expect to meet? Well presumably the likes of Kettering, MK and Becket, but also possibly Paviors (from Nottingham - who came to our 7s last year - good team), North Kesteven (Lincs - supposedly very good), Buxton, Kidderminster perhaps (or are they West Mids?) and other teams - most of whom we will never have heard of - but all in all it might be a bit different from the usual round.

So what do people think? No rush to make any decisions yet but worth a bit of discussion perhaps.

    i think it is a good idea, otherwise we will just end up playing the usual teams which noone really wants to play. we do get bored of playing the same teams over and over. much like the attitude that is becoming apparent about sudbury.
