New RFL 'Player Development League' to be launched

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 15:28

The League will offer playing opportunities for Youth and Junior teams. In the first of two new playing offers for 2018, the Rugby Football League is pleased to announce the launch of a new 'Player Development League' (PDL), which is to be introduced having held discussions with community clubs and players.

The opportunity to play merit league-style fixtures and take part in other Rugby League activity under the PDL banner will be open to youth and junior teams. There are no proposals to limit the geographical area covered by the PDL. The focus will be on teams and clubs who, for a variety of reasons, cannot commit to a full March to October season.

This could include new teams as well as existing teams who perhaps do not have a squad size large enough to sustain a full season in one of the existing competitions.

Clubs who wish to register an interest or require further details should contact the RFL''s Head of Growth Marc Lovering on: marc.lovering@rfl.uk.com.

World Rugby's 'simplified law book' launches today with the aim of enhancing accessibility and understanding without altering the laws themselves.

The revolutionary law book, which can be accessed at laws.worldrugby.org and downloaded via the App store, is the product of almost two years' work by a specialist group.

The result is a law book that is more logically laid out, clearer in its explanations and, with various repetitions and contradictions removed, 42 per cent shorter than the current version.
