Women's Regional Rugby

In an exciting development for Women's Regional Rugby, RGC will join Cardiff Blues, Dragons, Scarlets and Ospreys for the upcoming season. 

All players must register by 23rd July to be eligible either for their Regional Youth or Senior Women's teams. The new online registration system is open to all existing and new players, and takes less than two minutes to complete.

Registered players will be required to attend a skills and assessment event at the end of July, led by the Wales Women national squad's coaching and S&C team. Pre-season training will commence in August with final squads named in September, in preparation for a 'Super 5s' event: a full day of rugby involving all regions and both age groups. 

With this year's new structure, the Welsh Rugby Union aims to augment the excellent work carried out by the regions during the past season, as well as continuing to strengthen the ties between club, region and country.

Changes will involve strengthening the structure of the regional programme - including the new RGC Senior Women's team - and improving the standard of rugby across the board. The integration of U18 and Senior Women's fixtures will see their games played on the same day, at the same venue - an exciting prospect for players and supporters alike.

The WRU has appointed new coaching teams across the five regions, overseen by regional leads. They are as follows:

RGC Lead: David Roberts
Coaches: Grace Jones, Simon Dignam, Anthony Probert, Paul Craft, Marc Roberts and Jennifer Davies

Dragons Lead: Jamie Sollis
Coaches: Luke Morgan, Jason Williams, Jacob Allen, Loan Lane and Owen Smith

Scarlets Lead: Daryl Morgan
Coaches: John Murcott, Gareth Gravell, Victoria Owens and Nico Setaro

Ospreys Lead: Adrian Howell
Coaches: Joshua Humphreys, Alyn Lake, Kyle Tucker and Nick Edwards

Cardiff Blues Lead: Mark Hutton
Coaches: Lisa Newton, James Watts-Rees, Michael Connor, Stuart Kibble and Stuart Clarke
