"Not the National" Tens... is ON!!!

Well, as near as dammit because RFUW have agreed to support an event for "RFUW affilitated" teams. 

The teeny snag is that several Welsh teams have entered (with the WRU's support) and so, if this were strictly adhered to, they could not play. Gloucester Girls Rugby will be seeking clarification on this rule as they presume that it is there to prevent rogue sides from participating, and had not taken into considreration that Welsh sides had entered. If this is the case, which seems the likely, it can easily be resolved by only allowing teams affiliated to their National Governing Body, which will support the original intention. 

After all, Welsh regional teams have played in the RFUW's own regional championships so cross-border competition even at official events is not impossible - and the Gloucester City 10s (to give the event its correct name) is not even an "official" event, and so far as I am aware it is not unheard of for Welsh clubs to take part in English club fixtures.

  1. Just a thought - if having Welsh clubs there is such a problem how come there was a Welsh team at the U18s day at Lichfield last year - sometimes don't you think obstacles are just thrown up for the sake of it - all the girls want to do is play rugby!
