Newport RFC confirms that the club has submitted a formal application for a place in the Elite Domestic Competition. Following the initial expression of interest submitted by the club in October, a more complex and detailed application has been submitted to the WRU.
The WRU has appointed an independent panel to conduct a review of all the applications from 2nd January and are due to present their recommendations to the Board on the 9th January. Applicant clubs are set to be informed on the 15th January whether their application has been successful or not.
The Directors of Newport RFC would like to thank everyone associated with the club who have worked so hard to put this application together.
