Age Grade Rugby
GRFU Age Grade Chair – Connor Thompson
GRFU Schools Representative – Mark Nicholson
The GRFU Age Grade, Schools and Colleges committee has a sole aim of more players playing more often – in clubs, schools and colleges.
This comes through effective collaboration from likeminded people at clubs, schools, players, coaches, teachers and many more. Alongside this, the committee supports other sector heads to ensure a safe and fair game is played in line with the core values of rugby – teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship.
To support this, effective communication to and from the relevant parties within GRFU, RFU and the wider rugby community is necessary.
