It has been brought to our attention that some clubs appear to be confused about the rules with regard player permitting in Junior and Mini rugby.
here for your Information is clarification of the rules and regulations.
There are no facilities to allow the permitting of junior players under WRU rules and regulations. In the past a blind eye has been turned when two teams have played each other and one team has loaned the other team a player or two to allow the fixture to go ahead. There have also been occasions when we as a district committee made a decision to allow some players to play for another team for a short period with the agreement of both coaches, and senior committees, but they are isolated incidents.
There are regular National meetings of the JRDA’s at the Millennium Stadium where we discuss how best to run the mini/junior game in Wales, to achieve the best for the game as a whole, and the question of ‘permits’ in junior rugby has been added to the agenda by Afan Nedd District for the August meeting.
Please therefore accept this communication as notification that no club is to play a player not registered to the club else they be in breach or WRU regulation.
