As was seen at 2013 Mini Nationals, any player not playing at the 2014 Nationals as part of a regional franchise will still have the opportunity to trial for an England Squad at the 2014 Open Trial. The Open Trial will be for any player NOT playing in a regional franchise and also for those who were originally intending on playing in the Masters Division, which has unfortunately had to be cancelled this year.

The tournament will showcase the best players in England from each region and will be used as the selection pathway into the Open’s, Senior’s and Master’s squads for the 2015 Touch World Cup to be held in Coffs Harbour, Australia.

If you are unable to attend the 2014 Touch Nationals for any reason and would still like to be considered for National selection, please contact Ben@englantouch.org.uk to see if you may be eligible for an exemption request.

Please stand by for information on how to trial for YOUR region!

If you have any questions about the ETA 2014 Nationals, please contact Ben@englandtouch.org.uk
