RFU Developing Player Programme: (DPP)


“U13 DPP nominations for Leicester Tigers are now live and have been sent out to clubs and schools. If your club or school has not had this information, please email DPP@tigers.co.uk or contact Mike Bezus at mtb@scsgroup.com

Staffordshire U15 Delivery team would like to invite nominations for players to trial for the Staffordshire U15 Rugby Squad. (Current Season U15 Players, year 10)

Players should show above average standards in their core skills of catch & pass, tackle and contact and / or have excellent game understanding and tactical awareness.

We also encourage you to nominate any players that have outstanding physical qualities or potential (speed, size, height, strength).

In making the nominations coaches should only put forward players who possess these attributes as it is unlikely that those who do not will get through. Nominations are limited to 3 per club/school, if anyone feels they have more than 3 players then email us directly on mtb@scsgroup.com with supporting information.

Player who are currently in the Tigers DPP programme should not be nominated for this group as they follow a different player pathway.

Nominations must be made by emailing me directly at mtb@scsgroup.com on or before Monday 8th January 2018 giving the Players Name, Date of Birth, Position, Club/School and contact details.

The trial will take place on Sunday 14th January 2018 from 12.30pm until approximately 3.30pm at Longton RUFC. Please ensure that any player that you nominate is able to make this date.

If you have any queries please email me and I will try and answer them.
