After a busy Inter-service Championship 2013, going around watching as many games as possible across the whole spectrum of service rugby and the CSU23’s competing against OxBridge as the for runner to the main event at Twickenham. The CS DoR’s attention is now firmly focused on the Remembrance day fixture to be held in Plymouth on 12 November. A detailed road map has been emailed to all single service head coaches and Directors of Rugby on the how the CS DoR intends on achieving this.
The CS Senior and Ladies head Coaches will over the next couple of months, in contrast to previous years announce an initial selection of 30 players that will be further reduced to the playing squads in October. All those selected will be informed accordingly once the Head Coaches in conjunction with their coaching teams have trawled through all the IS 2013 dvd’s and noting those Single Service DoR’s put forward, to select the best players to represent the Combined services.
The CS DoR is pleased to announce, for the first time, the full CS Ladies TSG breakdown for the November fixture against Exeter University. Picking the best Head Coach and staff has been made easy by the high caliber of individuals that have been part of Ladies Rugby this year.
