Cornish All Blacks to host mini and youth rugby debate
The Cornish All Blacks are among Rugby Union clubs, schools and colleges, their volunteers and supporters from across the South West joining the debate on the future development of Mini and Youth rugby through a series of RFU roadshows being held in the region over the coming weeks.
The South West roadshows will be held at the Cornish All Blacks (Launceston RFC) on October 28, followed by further meetings at Taunton (October 29), Thornbury (October 31), North Dorset (November 18) and Henley (December 3). All roadshows are 7pm for a 7.30pm start and will be finished by 9.30pm.
A series of 27 consultation meetings will be taking place in locations across the country to engage with organisers, teachers, coaches, referees and parents and obtain their thoughts on the principles of the game from age seven to 18, and how this could look in practise.
The RFU is looking for views on how the New Rules of Play work practically, to propose and get feedback on what competition format best recruits and retains players, and to hear the challenges and solutions that more players wanting to play will create for the people-resource in rugby clubs, schools and colleges.

The meetings will provide opportunities for as wide a cross-section as possible from the game to hear the main options being considered, to ask questions and to express their views.
Following the consultation process, any necessary adjustments will be made to the New Rules of Play, the rollout of regulations, and recruitment and training programmes, with a competition framework being finalised in early 2014.
The RFU is committed to ensuring that more young people start, remain and choose a lifelong friendship with rugby union, strengthening clubs and growing the game in the communities around them as a result.
