WRU RGC CUP
The competition shall be known as ‘The WRU RGC Cup’. The format and all playing aspects of ‘The WRU RGC Cup’ (“Competition”) shall be overseen and governed by the WRU Community team. The competition shall be played under the WRU Player Pathway directives and World Rugby Laws of the Game and in accordance with the WRU Code of Conduct relating to the game of rugby.
There is an additional competition for teams eliminated from The WRU RGC Cup within the first round. Teams will be drawn into a group based on geographical location and play each other in a round robin format during one afternoon. Wherever they finish at the end of the round robin will determine if they will enter the RGC Cup, Plate or the Bowl competition.
This will ensure that all teams entered in the competition play at least four matches in a round robin format and at least one cup/plate or bowl knockout game. All references in this Rules and Guidelines document that refer to ‘The WRU RGC Cup’ will be deemed to equally apply to ‘The WRU RGC Plate and Bowl’. The Cup is open to teams within the Under 12,13,14,15 & 16’s age groups, whose parent Clubs fall under the control of The District J Game Management Group.
All teams wishing to take part in the competition must notify the organisers by the 18th August prior to the first round draw. All Junior & Youth fixture secretaries are requested to discuss team registration numbers and team capabilities with each coach prior to entering teams into the draw to ensure that they can fulfil the Cup fixtures throughout the season.
Clubs who enter the competition and withdraw without a notable or supported reason, should note that this may impact negatively on future requests for that Club to take part in The WRU RGC Cup Competition.
Once notification has been received, the team will be deemed to have entered the competition and to have accepted the terms and conditions of entry.
