Girls Wave 1 Round 1 – info sent out this morning to Clubs

Hi all,

Thank you for your patience and commitment, we have had multiple teams enter or pull out this week and have subsequently had to redo the draw. Great news is that we have a massive amount of teams in all age groups – great news. A reminder also that we are all there to make a great experience for the girls, so keep that in mind for week 1 as we all settle in to how the event runs. Look after the girls and the other teams, officials and staff – we are all in it for a great rugby experience.
