Your News London & South East U15 girls ready to face South West

Talent development officer Maggie Alphonsi has named the London & South East Under 15 team to face the South West at Newbury RFC on Sunday (March 13, 2pm) in the new regional team’s first competitive match ahead of the RFUW Divisional Festival next month.

The Festival at Hartpury College near Gloucester on April 16 and 17 will see players continue in their bids to stake a claim for places in national squads.

The U15 girls play a game with important differences to the senior version. Flankers are not included, so each team has 13 players, and there are no lineouts. Matches last for 25 minutes each way.

Operating in three bands – seniors, Under 18s and Under 15s – the RFUW Divisional Programme comprises club players who are put forward by their constituency body and it leads towards possible inclusion in the senior England team or places in the U18 and U15 National Talent Development Groups.

The London & South East U15 team will be coached by Simon Burgess and James Cooper.
