Any player (age permitting) wishing to represent Wales at either National or Development squad level must attend the Regional Development Academies which are being held during the summer.
From these Academies, the soon to be appointed National Coaches will identify approximately 60 players who will then attend a National squad selection weekend (scheduled for the last weekend in September). Approximately 44 players will be selected to represent Wales at either National or Development squad levels.
