This season the Devon women’s representative squad will be competing in the Gill Burns County Championship third division, and all players across Devon at Level 3 (Championship 2) and below are eligible to play. This season the team will play Middlesex RFU and Dorset & Wilts RFU women’s teams, with a warm-up game scheduled against Cornwall RFU women’s team.
TRIALS AND SELECTION
This season DRFU will be holding two open trials and women interested in being part of the squad must attend at least one session to be considered for the squad. The dates have been selected so that every team in Devon can attend at least one of these dates based on the league and cup timetables. The sessions will be held on Sunday 29th January 2023 and Sunday 5th February 2023 at the 3G pitch at the Ashbury Golf Hotel, Oakhampton.

If you are planning on attending, please use THIS LINK to register your interest and let us know which of the subsequent games and training sessions you could attend.
