WRU Competition Review

By Welsh Rugby Union | 09/11/2017

The Welsh Rugby Union (“WRU”) is conducting a review of its performance competition structure for adult male rugby (below regional rugby including Premiership and Championship) and seeks the input of its key stakeholders.

The purpose of the review is as follows: 

* To inform a ‘future’ competition structure that supports the performance pathway for players within the adult male game
* To identify the ‘pathway' required to support player development plus coach / referee development and support staff to national level
* To understand the barriers to performance, participation and development that exist within the current competition structure, and
* To support the financially sustainability of the premiership and championship.

The WRU has appointed independent consultants to conduct the review, and they have already hosted a few workshop and had meetings with key people. During the month of November there will also be further meetings to make sure that the review is very thorough.

As part of the review it is vital that we have the views and thoughts of people that are involved (staff, committee members, club members and supporters) at the premiership and championship level. Therefore the Welsh Rugby Union would be grateful if you would open the link and answer the questions on the survey below.
