Message from Eddie Jones
With England’s Pool C match having been called off due to Typhoon Hagibis, England now face Australia in Oita in the quarter-finals on Saturday 19 October (KO 8:15am BST, live on ITV) having finished top of the pool.

Eddie Jones:

“The Japanese have a saying ‘Shouganai’ – we can’t control it. Although we all like to think we’ve got power above and beyond what’s going on in the world, we don’t. These things happen and you just ride with it.

So, after a three-day camp in Miyazaki we are in Oita to prepare for the quarter-final.

This is a wonderful Rugby World Cup and we are all excited. We have been given an opportunity. Who would have thought we’d have two relatively easy games, one tough game and then two weeks to prepare for a quarter-final.

We do really feel for the thousands of England fans in Tokyo for the game because it would have been a special occasion. We are lucky to have such great supporters and I’m sure they, and all our fans back home, are all very disappointed.”
Rise and Shine
Great activities continue to take place nationwide. These include the event held for students from five schools at Stourbridge RFC to coincide with the England v USA game.

In addition, this week’s featured photo was taken at the third annual RAF Girls Festival of Rugby which was held on 6th October at RAF Halton, and celebrates the RAFRU centenary year. More than 1,000 U13s, U15s and U18s girls from local rugby clubs enjoyed a fantastic event supported by the RAF Rugby Union Women’s team.

We continue to post loads of interesting posts on England Rugby’s social media channels and it’s great that the nation continue to be behind the squad. #CarryThemHome

The National Rugby Survey is open until the end of October. We’ve already had a positive response, with match officials, current adult players and club officials being the most proactive.

So far, respondents have ranked a sociable and friendly atmosphere after the game as the number one factor in creating an enjoyable rugby experience, do you agree?

Huge congratulations to Alicia Maude - Ex Ellingham and Ringwood player on being selected for Englands U20 squad.



England Women U20s squad announced for 2019/20 season



The England Women U20s squad for the 2019/20 season has been named.

The core 24-player group, as well as those invited to join on a camp-by-camp basis, will take part in three-day training camps each month. 

Given the 2019/20 season focus for this age group is to develop players as individuals, the competition phase has been moved to the summer of 2020 to allow maximum development within and outside of international training camps.

Players will be able to gain experience of regular domestic competitive rugby through the Tyrrells Premier 15s and BUCS [university] leagues.

Former England international and RFU Performance Pathway Officer Amy Turner will lead the programme with support from James Cooper.

Turner said: “We’ve selected a squad with the intent of player development over the course of the season.

“All players are aged between 17 and 20 so we have a real range, depth and breadth of talent.

“The majority of the group are linked to Tyrrells Premier 15s clubs which allows us to continue working together with those in the domestic game.

“The camps will allow us to focus on the detail over the next seven months and we’re all looking forward to getting started.”

A Dad of one of our players has decided to raise money for us (and Great Oaks SEN School in Southampton)

by running a 100 mile race, every month for a year! 

Bonkers but we'll take the cash! 
Please share far and wide:
Could you run 1 mile? How about 10 miles? How about 100 miles?
Gareth is the Dad of one of our players. To try and raise some funds for the Hurricanes Rugby Club and Great Oaks SEN School, Gareth is going to run 100 miles......pretty impressive? Well it would be, but Gareth has decided to run 100 miles, every month, for a year which adds up to a LOT.......a LOT of miles, a LOT of pain and a LOT of effort.
Please share Gareth's gofundme link and let's help him turn his LOTS into a LOT of funds raised.
