Girls XV a side – Term 2

Based on 2018 Rep survey results conducted by SJRU post the representative XV season SJRU will run for the first time ever, a Girls XV’s a side 6 week competition of Club/District Based teams in the lead up to NSWJRU State Championship. This will give the girls in age groups of U13, U15 and U17 the opportunity to experience XV a side rugby and to hone their skills prior to selection of SJRU Representative teams following the conclusion of the 2019 State Championships. It is proposed the 15 a side competition will be played on Sunday afternoons in or around normal club SJRU competition games. The XV a side competition will run from 28 April to 2 June. With Club/District Based teams then competing in the 2019 State Championships on the weekend after on 8/9/10 June.

This is a great opportunity for all girls to experience both 7’s and XV’s, if they wish. Promotion of both 7’s and XV’s should be via Club initially with the support of the Districts and Zones as necessary.
