For further details please see the poster below.
Message from the National President:
Huge thanks to the members of Caerleon RFC for hosting today’s President’s Cup, especially Konrad Tomczyk for organising.
Two teams finished on 5-wins with the victory honours going to Gemma Foster, Tansy Mayfield and Richard Harris.
Runners-up were Mathew Howells, Robert Pugh & Gareth Spencer.
More importantly, that means all-4 players heading to Almeria for the World Championships in 2-weeks had some excellent practice.
Well done to everyone who turned up and played.
Final positions were:-

The full Draw can be seen here:
The Preliminary Round will take place 25-28 July, 2019.
The Executive Committee would like to wish Monkstone PC good luck and know they’ll do themselves and the Association proud.
Below is a list of teams entered for the President’s Cup this coming Sunday at Caerleon, the sharper eyed amongst you will notice there are only seven teams entered and as we all know this is not an ideal number when it comes to the running of a competition.
The closing date was last Sunday 7th April but in the hope that we can get another team to make it up to eight teams or another three teams to make it up to ten teams etc. Kon has extended the closing date to Friday 12th April.
If you would like to enter a team, can you please contact Kon asap with your team details.
1 R Harris / T Mayfield / G Foster
2 B Vaughan / K Tomczyk / Paul Mayfield
3 Gail Brooksbank / Pat Daviss / Andy Pook
4 Val Faulkener / Rob Faulkner / John Thorn
5 Sean Smith / Jayne Dunn / Roger Green
6 Bob Pugh / Mathew Howells / Gareth Spencer
7 Bernard Adshead / Vickie Adshead / Roger Griffin
Unfortunately Wenvoe Raiders were included in the draw for the League Cup/Plate when they had indicated that they did not want to take part. This has meant that Pool B fixture list has had to be revised. A simple omission of Wenvoe Raiders did not work as 1 team ended up with 3 home fixtures out of 4 games whilst another had 3 away games. The pattern of the fixture grid from Pools C & D has therefore been repeated for Pool B.
If you are in Pool B and have downloaded the fixture list, please download the latest version “rev 1 – 8 April 2019”.
It was brought to our attention at last night’s OGM that the names of the players who qualified to represent Wales were not published on the website, this was obviously an oversight and I would like to apologise on behalf of the Exec.
Following three rounds of assessments in various disciplines over several weeks the following players were selected to represent Wales at this year’s World Championships.
Tony Smith and Peter Beresford
We would like to wish them all the best for a successful and a safe trip.
