The National 10s are ON!!

Despite RFUW's cancellation, these WILL now be a National 10s in the forthcoming season!

RFUW have not changed their mind - despite protests - but that will not stop one of junior rugby's most popular events, and now Gloucester Girls' Rugby and Hartpury College have agreed to work together to organise a replacement event on the weekend of the 18th/19th April.

The new National 10s will be bigger and better than ever before.
  • For the first time there will be a U15 competition as well as a U18 event
  • Up to 16 teams will take part in each event, instead of six.
  • The National 10s will be an "open" event without regional qualifiers. This means that...
    • Teams can enter any regional 10s that may be organised without needing to also commit to the national finals
    • No need to clubs to keep a weekend free for an event than they may not take part in
  • A two-day festival of girls rugby is planned, with the U18 event on the 18th and U15 event on the 19th - and plenty of entertainment in between!
National 10s promises to be the biggest and best festival of girls' rugby ever held in England - and Letchworth will definitely be there. Clubs will be contacted shortly, but in the meanwhile anyone reading this should visit the GGR website or contact Lisa Walsh of GGR ( for more information.

Regional 10s?

RFUW have said (though they haven't actually publicised it yet) that funding has been put aside for clubs to put on regional 10s competitions. Clubs interested in running a local 10s should contact their WRDM (who hopefully will have been told about it) - we will be.
