Cricket Wales Statement Regarding Rugby and Cricket
Cricket & Rugby
We are in active discussions with the WRU to ensure minimal
impact on cricket.
The WRU is trialling some mini and u11 festivals in the
summer in certain parts of Wales this year. Cricket Wales' officers are in discussion with the WRU as to how
cricket can be safeguarded and not impinged on.
We are working with Rugby so
that cricket protects its time slots for young people in the summer period.
This will involve local mapping of when sport is organised so that both sports
(and possibly others) are more likely to fit together and not clash.
certainly will happen if we do not plan with the WRU. Discussions have already
been taking place with Ryan Jones Head of Development for WRU and his
colleagues involved in this pilot. We are actively sharing plans and appreciate
this opportunity to work together. Some of the festivals will be 'More than'
festivals with space for cricket.
