Croeso i'r Gogledd Cymru!

News about girls rugby in another country that - for once - isn't the USA or Canada! In fact I've its a blog from that land that is so scary that RFUW won't allow us to play its teams in the Gloucester City Tens for fear of... well, I've no idea actually...

Anyway - its a'n fawr croeso i'r "ruckosphere" i Gogledd Cymru Bachgennesau Rygbi (or something like that - its been a heck of while since I said so much as a beint cheweru, os gwelwch yn dda).

In fact North Wales Girls Rugby has been running since the beginning of the season when the new Gogledd Cymru regional team was formed, along with four other new regions (Scarlets, Blues, Dragons, and Ospreys) when the WRU decided to match their rugby development regions to the professional regional teams. As North Wales (which is what "Gogledd Cymru" means, if you hadn't worked that out!) has no professional region a fifth region was set up just for players in the top half of the country.

Apart from that it is a familiar tale - including disgruntled southern teams not wanting to travel to the remote north (generally South Walians view North Wales as somewhere akin to the moon!) and not enough fixtures, but there are some interesting snippets - like WRU videoing regional games as a means of informing selection rather than relying totally on trials.

Anway - good to see the blog idea spreading...
