The Welsh Rugby Union (“WRU”) is conducting a review of its performance competition structure for adult male rugby (below regional rugby including premiership and championship) and seeks the input of its key stakeholders. The purpose of the review is as follows:
- To inform a ‘future’ competition structure that supports the performance pathway for players within the adult male game
- To identify the ‘pathway' required to support player development plus coach / referee development and support staff to national level
- To understand the barriers to performance, participation and development that exist within the current competition structure, and
- To support the financially sustainability of the premiership and championship.
