Designed to engage with young Welsh qualified players and their families who are based outside Wales the camps are organised to potentially provide a pathway for young Welsh players into the age-grade system in Wales.
As WRU Exiles Programme Manager Gareth Davies outlined: “Strategically, the Exiles programme is a very important part of our pathway opportunities. The one-day camps are delivered by some of the best age grade coaches in Wales and avoid families having to spend time and money travelling to Wales to enable them to benefit from the experience.
“Regardless of their standard, the objective of the Exiles camps is to engage with Welsh qualified players based outside Wales and help them maximise their potential.”
“We have a number of products of the Exiles programme involved in our national age grade squads and many others involved with the Regions here in Wales.
“We also have strong and important links with education establishments and universities here in Wales where young Exiles have the chance to combine their rugby development with their academic progress to help them transition into senior rugby whilst being monitored by our regions”.
Players must be registered with the WRU Exiles programme via www.wru.wales/exiles to be invited to the camps which are taking place at various locations on July 25th (Midlands & North), 26th(London & South East) and 27th (South South West).
