Could you help spread girls rugby?

There is a new initiative designed to spread the game of rugby - and its looking for volunteers aged 16-24 to organise and run events, large and small.

vRugby is a project funded by investment from something called the v match fund, a charity that exists to promote youth voluntary work in England. It has come together with the Rugby Football Foundation with the aim of putting together a network of CBs, clubs and 3,750 individual young volunteers to run events, improve facilities, spread the game's ethos, and raise funds.

Its sounds great, but working out exactly how you could be involved if you were interested is at present a little like trying to nail down a jelly. There are a fair few articles and websites out there (including one today about England's U20 captain Laura Keates being appointed a "vRugby Ambassador") but none seem to answer the basic question of "what do I do if I want to be involved". However, I have tracked down the Hertfordshire "County Activator" - a guy called Sam Fulling at Saracens - who should hopefully be able to fill in the gaps.

In the meanwhile take a look at the vRugby website and think about whether you could become involved.
