Jo Penrose is appointed Welsh Rugby Union Youth Representative
Congratulations to Jo Penrose (L6) who has recently had the honour of becoming a representative of the Welsh Rugby Union with a group of fourteen other young people.
Jo applied to the Board through uploading a YouTube video talking about the reasons why young people give up rugby and what can be done to combat this.
Jo attends quarterly meetings at the Principality Stadium with the Chief Executive and former Welsh captain, Ryan Jones. The representatives are currently working on contacting local clubs to ask them to participate in an online survey about shaping the game of rugby. (http://www.wru.wales/shapeourgame)
Jo commented: ‘it’s great to be contributing to grassroots development of our national sport.’
