Change to women’s rugby competition at National Championships

Following guidance from the RFU legal team, AoC Sport has had to make an amendment to the rules of eligibility for the women’s rugby competition at this year’s National Championships.

The competition will now be for U18 students only, which means they must have been under 18 years of age at midnight on 31 August 2015.

RFU rules do not allow under 18 players to play against adult players at this level of competition.

We apologise for the short notice but hope that we can still look forward to an exciting and thoroughly enjoyable competition in Tyne and Wear.
