We are aware that many of you may have recently entered the Schools Sport Magazine National Schools U13 rugby union cup for 2016/17. Some of you have been in touch to highlight the conflict between this event and the recently broadcast changes to the Age Grade game, we thank you for your support and vigilance.
The competition is a knock-out which is not on the competition menu for U13 rugby and is therefore outside RFU Regulations. We have been in touch with the organisers to work with them on finding a constructive solution but unfortunately up until this point, a solution has not been found.
We believe that it is important to notify any participating schools that the competition remains non-compliant with RFU Regulation.
We will continue to work hard on your behalf to engage School Sport Magazine in staging a format that is in line with the game’s regulations.
