Second Gloucester City 10s a sell out

The competition that grew out of RFUW's still largely inexplicable cancellation of the National 10s last season has grown even bigger and has already "sold out", over two months before the event.

Gloucester City 10s had one of the most troubled births of any competition ever last season - at times you almost believed that someone, somewhere didn't want it to take place for some reason - but was a huge success, despite only having last minute clearance from those in authority. This year it seems to have been far less troubled and as a result Lisa Holmyard (the indefatigable organiser) has now announced that she has closed the entry. The tournament on 17th April will feature an amazing 42 teams and over 600 players in three age bands - U12, U15 and U18.

So a big congratulations to Lisa and all her helpers at the Gloucester Girls Rugby Trust. If nothing else it shows how the junior game continues to grow!
