The round robin tournament will consist of three teams of English players and one of Celts which will provide the highest level of domestic competition ever. The top two teams at the end of the round robin matches will play at Twickenham as a curtain raiser to the Guinness Premiership final. It is hoped that the selected Welsh players will develop in this highly competitive environment, allowing for invaluable experience for future international rugby.
