ARU launches Tasmanian Development Week

by Staff Writer

Starting Sunday, the Australian Rugby Union is launching Tasmanian Development Week to engage more locals interested in taking a role in the game.

It doesn't matter whether you're keen to become a coach, referee or even a potential Rugby Sevens player, the ARU is encouraging everyone interested in Rugby Union to come and check out what the sport is about.

Hobart and Devonport will play host to the various activities.

Australian Rugby Union's Game Development Manager Dale Roberson said: "This is a great way for locals who love the game in Tasmania to get involved in the game in some way."
