Not the World Cup! Girls Country Trials

County trials will be more important than ever this year. With the new structure there almost certainly cannot be development squad, and also there will be none of the tournaments the county teams have played (so successfully) in for the past few years. Such is "progress", it seems!

In short to stand any chance of getting into the new Divisional teams, and then onto the TDGs, you have to hit the ground running and get into the county squad next month, if you have any ambitions to play beyond club level.

So make sure that Sunday 26th September is in your diary, in red, with double underlinings. The "Herts Girls County Trial and Development Afternoon" will be at Welwyn RFC from 1.00 onward.

(On a side line it strikes me as balmy that this new structure chokes of any chance for so many players to make a mark at a representative level so early in the season. In the past up-and-coming players, maybe new to the game, had until around December or even January before the axe came down. Now, with closed trials and so few county games, either you hit the mark at the first attempt, or you are out. Crazy.)
