Funding support reminder:

The team is here to support clubs with grants and funding bids. Do get in touch. E: Russell.Murphy@rfl.uk.com

Good luck to the players at the Commonwealth Championships:

U23s players from the community game have headed to Australia to represent England in the Commonwealth 9s Championships with all our best wishes. The RFL has sent a dedicated media officer to capture inspirational content which will be shared across channels including the OurLeague membership app.

Representative honours are a huge way that the sport retains and celebrates the most talented players across the community game. A new campaign to promote Representative Rugby League will be launched later this Spring. Watch this space.  

New Girls’ and Women’s Pathway:

Information has been shared with clubs that currently offer girls’ and/or women’s Rugby League. If you’d like more information or support to set up a girls offer, please get in touch.

FREE creative support for clubs and other partners including marketing campaigning assets: The team has provided new poster and flyer designs, GIFs, social graphics for a number of clubs to promote recruitment, fixtures and events. Don’t miss out – the team is here to support. Please contact Sustainable Clubs and Foundations Manager, Tom Brindle E: Tom.Brindle@rfl.co.uk

Did your club complete the RFL Facilities Survey? Prizes were offered as an incentive to complete the survey. The winning clubs have been picked out of a hat and the prizes including Rhino balls are on their way. Look out!
