Following the implementation of age grade affiliation, RFU Council has agreed to extend this principle in the adult game from 1 July 2023.
No action is required from clubs or players yet. This is purely advance warning notifying clubs of the change to be implemented next season.
More details of what will be asked of players and clubs in preparation to sign-up to play for the 2023/2024 season will be shared early in the new year.
Please do not ask adult players to affiliate before 1 July 2023 as this will over-ride the current registration process and could result in not being able to select a player on the match card.
