Fancy touring the world playing for England?

A year later than most of the rest of the world, England have finally woken up to the importance of Sevens Rugby. With the 2013 World Cup just around the corner (what is effectively the first qualifier, in North Africa, takes place this weekend) and then the 2016 Olympics following on soon after, many countries around the world have been concentrating on Sevens since last year's World Cup ended. Some nations - such as Australia and Brazil - have said that they will be concentrating almost exclusively on Sevens for the next few years, while others - including Netherlands, France and Canada - are clearly selecting their best players for sevens ahead of their XVs team.

In a bid to catch up RFUW have announced Open Trials for any adult players (ie. aged 18 or more on the day), which will take place at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford on 15th May. Anyone interested needs to compete and return this form by 7th May.

There is NO requirement to have ever been part of any national or regional squads or groups - indeed it is clear that RFUW are particularly looking for younger players who may have only just taken up the game, or who have otherwise been "missed" by the existing programmes.
