Your News Chance for rugby union enthusiasts in Kent to shape the game

RUGBY Union club members, volunteers and supporters in Kent and the surrounding area will join the debate on how the game should be governed at a consultation roadshow being hosted by Tunbridge Wells RFC on Tuesday February 19 at 7pm.

The roadshow led by the RFUís Chief Executive Ian Ritchie is one of 12 consultation events being staged across the country to engage with the Unionís membership and obtain their thoughts on how best the administration and structure of the game should evolve to handle the challenges of the 21st century.

The structure and working practices of the RFU have already been the subject of a comprehensive report from international law firm Slaughter & May and of a series of discussions involving five Advisory Groups drawn from all sectors of the Union.

The consultation document which has resulted has been issued to member clubs for their feedback and the meeting at St. Mark's Recreation Ground (TN2 5LS) is another opportunity for the membership to hear the main points being presented and for members' questions to be asked and views from the floor expressed and recorded.

As the Rugby World Cup 2015 approaches, the future governance of the game is now a more vital topic than ever before, which in turn puts even greater emphasis on the grass-roots membership who run the game at club and County level to contribute to the decision-making process.
