The IRFU Exiles are delighted the announce the dates for the Summer Development Days which will take place in July.

The days are an opportunity for players born in 2004 and 2005 to learn about the Exiles pathway, undertake skill development sessions and develop connections with other Irish-qualified (IQ) players.

The days are specifically developmental in nature and, as such, no selection is made following them. They are purely a chance for the coaches and staff to get to know the players before they move further in to the programme in October.


Sunday, July 7 – SOUTH Day – London Irish RFC, Hazelwood Drive, Sunbury-on-Thames TW16 6QU

Sunday, July 14 – NORTH Day – Preston Grasshoppers RFC, Lightfoot Green Ln, Preston PR4 0AP


Specifics for the days will be communicated out to players once they have registered. You can register on www.iqrugby.ie – click here.

All attending players are required to register to ensure there are enough volunteer coaches and catering available.

If for any reason you are unable to attend, this is not an issue. Please continue to register anyway as all registered players will be invited back again for the Development Days taking place in October. Dates and venues for these will be confirmed and communicated out once finalised.
