Along with Sports Wales the WRU is sending out an open invitation to sportswomen to attend a Talent Identification event at the National Centre of Excellence on Saturday, September 27th. At the end of the day's action, everyone will be given "a pathway" to continue playing if they wished.

I would urge anyone with a sporting background to go along and attend. There will be speed and agility tests along with individual and team tasks so there is something for everyone to have a go at.
