    Hi i am Matt evans a former professional Rugby Union player for Gloucester Acadamy i got injured and was told to not play contact sports so i have taken up touch rugby. since playing i have had alot of good feedback from players and spectators and was told to try out for England. i am a fitness instructor so i make my own plans up which has helped me develop and improve at touch. i wanted to know if there are trials for the national team at all if so when or where.

    thankyou for your time

    Hello there. I am the captain of the St.Andrews University Touch Rugby team in Scotland. We are the first university in Scotland to have such a team and we have been training for over a year but find little opportunity to compete. I was just wondering if you guys at this site could give me any information of any day tournaments anywhere where we would be permitted to play (we are willing to travel). I do appreciate that the site is called “Englandtouch” but our team is predominantly English so if u could give me any help, Id greatly appreciate it!

      Hi Cormac

      Fantastic to hear about your University Touch team.
      There is a tournament coming up in Manchester in February which would be great for you - look at our news and events links. There is a social mixed, Mens and Women's comp. It is run by Manchester Chargers - so you could check out their website.
      Please also have a look at our events calendar and keep looking throughout the year - there will be many tournaments through the year that you are more than welcome to attend. Also have a look at the Challenge Series (under Touch Series) which will be run through the summer and should be great fun (mixed tournaments).

      Hope to see your team on the Touch field soon!
