National 10s line-up confirmed

The teams at National 10s will be....

  • Darlington Mowden Park
  • Letchworth
  • Reading
  • Tynedale
  • Wimborne
  • Worcester

Rather tasty company I think you will agree. Some big names there for a big day.

The only slight confusion now is which day as RFUW have written to me saying the 4th (Sunday), when we - plus Uncle Tom Cobley at Mellish - thought the finals were on the 5th, what with the senior 10s being on the 4th (presumably at the same place). While rubbing shoulders with the cream of adult women's rugby would be a bonus, how much room is there at Lichfield?

  • It begins to look as if this was all an error on the entry form. Joe and Phil have said that they recall the senior and junior tens being played on the same day last year, so its quite possible - even likely - that they will be this year, and that the date will be the 4th... despite earlier information to the contrary.
  • Actually it now increasingly looks like a... well, use an appropriate adjective of your own because checking back we discover that the entry form AND the competition rules (indeed every bit of paper we were sent) says 5th May. In fact the only thing that says the 4th is the fabled RFUW calendar... which does not actually include the U18 tens competition at all (at least not in May), only the senior tens. Admittedly this may all be academic being as presumably RFUW haven't booked the ground for the 5th.


  1. The RFUW entry form for the Divisional 10s states that both Senior and Junior National 10s will be at Lichfield on Monday, May 5th.

  2. And rule 14 of the Divisional 10s tournament also states that the National 10s are at Lichfield on 5th May 2008.
