Touchline reports on 10s

The latest issue of Touchline is out - paper copies from RFU or view it online.

We get a mention (again) on the RFUW pages in a report on the U18 National 10s last season. What is particular interesting about this short article is what it does not say - no hint here that the event was undersubscribed, or that there was any likelihood of it being cancelled. Indeed it gets a very high profile with the headline "Worcester Win Under 18s Title" (not "U18 10s title", for instance).

You could be forgiven for thinking that the author of the article thought that the 10s was the major event in U18 rugby, rather than merely the second year of a failed two-year experiment. Why else given such prominence to something that you were planning to do away with next season?
