Your News Midlands U15 squad named for RFUW Divisional Championship

MIDLANDS Under 15s begin their campaign in the RFUW Divisional Programme against their counterparts from the North at West Park Leeds on Sunday March 13.

The match will serve as a warm-up for the Divisional Festival which will be staged at Hartpury College near Gloucester from April 16 to 17.

I am really pleased that the Under 15s programme kicks off this weekend after several really good training sessions I know the coaches are really excited about the chance to see the girls playing, said Andy Paton, the RFUW Talent Development Officer for the Midlands.

This game against the North Under 15s will be used as a practice game for both sides in preparation for the Divisional Festival at Hartpury College next month when all the four divisions will play against each other in a festival of rugby.

The squad has been selected from the six Constituent Bodies in the Midlands and I am looking forward to seeing the emerging talent that we have at this age playing against equally good opposition and them all really relishing the experience.

The RFUW Divisional Programme forms an integral part of the RFUW Player Pathway, which can see players from u15s upwards progress from playing club rugby to potentially representing their country. Current England stars who have qualified through the player pathway include Margaret Alphonsi and Emily Scarratt

Players selected for the Divisional Programme have been selected by their Constituency Body and if they are successful could go on to try out for England this season , or qualify for the Under 18s and Under 15s RFUW National Talent Development Groups, which looks to develop the future talent of England Womens rugby.
