South London Rugby League schools championships

South London Storm are pleased to announce the launch of the South London Schools Rugby League Championships sponsored by Code13 Rugby League Magazine.

The competition which will start in February and end with a grand Finals Day in April, will initially run at year 9 and will be open to all secondary schools in Croydon, Lambeth, Wandsworth, Sutton and Merton. Other age groups will be introduced in future years.

Giovanni Cinque from South London Storm explained the thinking behind the competition "Over the last year demand for competitive Rugby League matches from our secondary schools has increased to such an extent that the Carnegie champion schools tournament and the friendly matches that go on around the tournament are no longer enough.

This new competition will allow core schools to offer year 9 competitive Rugby League from September through to May. We could have run at other age groups as well but want to be sure we run the project properly first before we add further years."

The competition is sponsored by Code13 Rugby League Magazine . Steven Devonshire the Magazine Editor commented on the sponsorhip "We are committed to helping the game develop throughout the country and the best place to start is at junior level. "South London Storm does a fantastic job in the community and this competition is a testament to that and a great advert for the game".
