The second round draw of the women's National Cup, to be played on Sunday 7th March, has today taken place.
The fixtures include a North Wales derby, with Ruthin drawing Dolgellau, premier division teams Neath and Cardiff Quins meet once again and first division Tylorstown and Blaunau Gwent face premier division Pontyclun and UWIC respectfully.
Following these second round fixtures, the Cup and Plate semi finals will be played on neutral territory on Sunday 14th March with the two finals on Sunday 28th March.
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.
The WRU officially unveiled the new pitch today in time for Wales to take on Australia in the first of the Dove Men Series autumn international matches this Saturday. Head Groundsman Lee Evans and colleague Craig Campbell reflect on the 15-week project and look ahead to a pitch perfect future at Millennium Stadium.
