Tyrrells announced as sponsor for newly named ‘Premier 15’ domestic women’s rugby competition…

Crisp brand Tyrrells have been named the sponsor for the women’s rugby union league for the next 3 years. 

After a tough selection process earlier in 2017, a 10 club league will start in less than 6 weeks’ time. The competition will begin 16th September. 

Nigel Melville, director of the RFU said that ‘the Tyrrells Premier 15s competition is a huge step forward for women’s rugby to strengthen the foundations of the women’s game as it continues to grow in popularity’. The Tyrrells Premier 15 will operate a league format with the top 4 teams progressing to the semi-finals played over 2 legs, culminating in a final on 29th April.
