Tournament on Sunday

As previously posted we are putting a team in for the Llantwit Fadre 10 aside competition, which will be similar to the Lucton tournament in terms of rules.  It's a chance for a bit of a pre-season run-around. We will need to aim to be to get there for 9.45 as the first game will be 10.30 sharp; typically with all these events the parking is always a problem. Anyway I'll ping around a teamer.

Can the the new players who have joined let me have contact mobile numbers so I can add you to Teamer?  Also if you have a problem getting to the tournament let me know so we can see about arranging lifts.

Llantwit Fadre tournament 1 September

The tournament will take place on our Cae Fardre pitch. Please turn off Main Road by Fagins pub.
Registration will take place in the control tent, and will commence at 9.30am and must be completed by 10.00am (to enable play to start promptly at 10.30am).
A registration form is attached. Complete a form for your team and bring along on the day.
Players’ registration cards must be shown at registration. Any player without one will not be allowed to participate in the Tournament. In exceptional circumstances (and we appreciate that this is early in the season) alternative evidence of age and identity MAY be accepted. The decision to allow participation rests with the Tournament Coordinator in case of dispute.
The Tournament will be played under the WRU Under 13s Pathway Rules (subject to the following) that are current on the date of the Tournament; a copy will be available on the day for reference.

If entering 2 sides you must keep the sides separate i.e. players from team A will not be allowed to play for team B. Details of the teams will need to be handed in at registration
There will be two groups and each team will play all teams in their group. The winners of each group will compete in the Cup Final; the runners up in each group will compete in the Plate Final; the 3rd placed teams will contest the Bowl Final. In the group stages there will be 3 points for a win and 1 point for a draw. In the event of points being even positions in the group table will be determined by:
Head to head record
Number of tries scored
Number of tries conceded
If the teams still cannot be separated the order in group will be decided by the toss of a coin
The finals will be 10 minutes per half with 1 minute for half time. If the scores are tied then ‘Golden Try’ extra time will be played for a maximum of 10 minutes. If the scores remained tied at the end of extra time the trophy will be shared

Your team should supply one suitably qualified referee who will be available to referee throughout the Tournament. If this is likely to cause a problem please contact us at least 48 hours before the Tournament
There will be a briefing meeting for referees on the pitch at 10.15 am.
The referee will be the sole judge of time and is responsible for reporting the scores to the relevant pitch marshal. The pitch marshal is responsible for filing the scores at the Control Tent.
Should there be any dispute regarding the refereeing decision then the TournamentCoordinator will support and uphold the decision of the referee.
Any complaint made by a referee to the Tournament Coordinator concerning abuse in any form from players, coaches, or spectators could result in disqualification of the team concerned.
