The Under 20s trials will be held at Parc y Scarlets.
All young and ambitious rugby players have a great opportunity to impress the Welsh national selectors in an Under 20s Open Trials day at the home of the Scarlets, Parc y Scarlets.

Interested players should meet in the classroom above the training barn at Parc y Scarlets and they should bring kit to do indoor and outdoor sessions, wet weather kit, boots, gum shield etc. They will be taking part in rugby, classroom and conditioning sessions. Players should also bring lunch/snacks and plenty of fluid.
The coaches will be Kylie Wilson and Chris Garrett who will be hoping to build on the success of the first two years of the programme where the focus will be on skills and conditioning and developing the player both on and off the field
The U20s will figure in two fixtures this season and with the Senior Women's World Cup at the end of the season, there is plenty of incentive for players to impress.
