GIRLS REPRESENTATIVE RUGBY
There is now a valid and viable Rep opportunity and pathway for girls junior rugby players across both club and school pathways. This is for both 7s and XV’s formats of the game.

SJRU will again be running a series of dedicated Girls Rugby Camps to be run early in the year. In conjunction with SJRU, Rugby AU, NSWRU, Harvey Norman and Rugby 1st we have prepared a dedicated Girls Program to compliment the 7’s, 10’s and XV’s offerings for Girls via the SJRU pathways. Check with your local club for dates and venues.
2024 will see SJRU again offer a ‘Rep’ opportunity for the U12 girls for the first time with the SJRU U12 Development Gala for Girls. This will be run on the 13th & 14th July at a Sydney Metro venue. It is designed to compliment the new SJRU U12 10’s Girls competition and if it is well patronized by our Districts (and Country Zones) then will potentially be the precursor to NSW Juniors starting an U12 Girls State Championship. So it is important that all our Districts enter teams here to help grow the girls game.
The big change for 2024 will be the first NSW Girls Junior Rep teams to be selected in the U16 & U18 Girls Age groups – this will be selected directly from the City vs Country games. So girls will be required to play CLUB rugby to be eligible to play at State Champs and then gain selection in the Sydney or NSW Country teams pathways to get into the frame for selection. The girls finally have a full Rep pathway to compliment what the boys game already enjoys.
