Bristol Bears Women to join next phase of the Tyrrells Premier 15s

Bristol Bears Women have been invited to join the next three-year league structure of the  Tyrrells Premier 15s following a league-wide audit.

An independently verified audit took place in the first half of the 2019/20 season where each current Tyrrells Premier 15s club was assessed based on a combination of their ability to deliver the competition’s Minimum Operating Standards, as well as their on pitch performance.

Bristol Bears Women have been ranked as one of the top six teams and have been invited to join the next three-year league structure covering seasons 2020/21 to 2022/23.

The club has gone from strength to strength since the birth of the TP15s three years ago; which has included a hugely successful rebrand, increased infrastructure at the club to provide players with a professional environment to compete at the elite level of women’s rugby, as well as making the transition to a top-class training and playing facility in Shaftesbury Park.

Applications for tender were also open to the wider game and a selection panel will now review and shortlist all the tender applications before the RFU invites clubs to interview.

Following the interview process, four clubs will then be invited to join the league starting from the 2020/21 season with the 10-club structure being maintained for three years before being reviewed again.
