As the national Constituent Body for rugby union in universities, the SRFU trustee board have commissioned a review of the game in our sector.
The “Higher Education Rugby Pathway Review” aims to be an independent piece of work which will provide a set of recommendations on the role of Higher Education, within the Rugby eco-system of England and how, in both the men’s and women’s game, it can enable the ‘Winning England’ strategy.
The SRFU has appointed Neil Tunnicliffe (Wharton Consulting) to complete the independent review. There will be a desktop review of the strategic landscape, a player survey and engagement of a broad range of stakeholders from across the game. The aim is to complete the consultation over the coming months and have a draft report with a set of recommendations available by end October 2022.
The university player survey is now open: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/NTVVDDB
There are 22 questions, and it should take 10-15 minutes to complete, there is a prize draw for completion and the deadline is Friday 14th October.
