The Welsh Rugby Union has today written to the IRB outlining the process followed to inform all players who represented Wales against France at U20 level in 2011 that their future potential international status was aligned only to selection for Wales at senior level.
The WRU again emphasised the process followed in relation to the selection of Welsh international squads at senior, U20's and Sevens are fully compliant with IRB regulations.
As such all Welsh players can be assured of their international status once they have represented Wales in any of the teams relevant for Wales qualification.
Nearly 40 players were involved in the first Wales Under 18 training session of the season. WRU National Performance Manager Gethin Watts is excited at the potential shown by the group and expects the Regional Under 18 Championship to hone their skills even further.
