Note that the RFU have changed their guidance on outgoing tours for the younger age groups – outgoing tours are allowed for all age groups as long as they are within the defined season (with appropriate permissions). Only U14s and above are allowed an outgoing tour out of season.

Clubs who are organising festivals or other competitions, please note the requirements to obtain permission from the CB (ie. Cheshire) contained in Regulation 15.
