Wellington Rugby announce internal U18 Girls programme for 2019

Wellington rugby are pleased to announce the internal under 18 girls rugby programme for 2019.

The purpose of the programme is to:

  1. To follow on from the progress made at the Development Week.
  2. This will give the players a chance to have some more competitive game time (especially contested scrums and lineouts) and specialist coaching.
  3. More time for Coaches and Selectors to finalise a Regional U18 Girls Representative Team that will participate in the annual Hurricanes U18 tournament.
  4. Further opportunity for players to prove they have the right attitude, work ethic and ability for the Regional U18 team and/or future development.

Please note that all players who are successful in being selected for the Regional U18 side will be required to have a commitment to attend all programme activities and must not expect to be released or made available for any other zone, club, school or sport requirements over this period.
