No rugby at Herts Youth Games

The good news is that - despite the cuts in government funding, and North Herts threat towithdraw all expenditure from it, Herts Youth Games will take place this year, and North Herts will have a team.

The bad news is that rugby will not be included in this year's Herts Youth Games for - I think - the first time in... well, since before the Letchworth Girls team was formed, so that would be "ever". Coming at a time when the RFUW is pushing the new U13 game as being a simple game ideal for schools its a decision that can only be described as a shade odd as you would think this would be a great chance to showcase this marvel. Oh well...

For anyone who has not taken part in HYG, and is aged under about 14 (or 19 if you play bowls...) there are still 11 other sports, and trials in many of them will be taking place in the next few weeks. If you get the chance to take part, don't miss it. More details at

  • There is a certain mad irony that the sport chosen to illustrate the HYG 2012 website is tag rugby! (
  • The sports replacing rugby seem to be bowls and cheerleading. I think this development defies comments except... cheerleading???? Cheerleading???? What next - ballroom dancing??
