UPDATE 06/01/21 – Sadly due to the national lockdown we’ve had to postpone the rearranged trial, registration is still open and will close on Friday 8th January. If you’ve signed up you will be contacted on Friday 15th to find out if you’ve been successful or not and contacted again once we have a new date for the trial.


Due to the national lockdown we had to postpone the original Great Britain trial but we are pleased to confirm that we have rescheduled it for Sunday 17th January 2021. All existing registrations for the trial will be carried over for this date so you do not need to do anything at this stage.

If you are not able to make the rescheduled date please email as soon as possible. Due to Covid restrictions we are strictly limited on player numbers and would not want anyone to miss out on a potential spot to a player who is unable to attend.

As a result of the delay to the trial, the date for the first British and Irish Cup 2021 has also been moved back and will now take place on Saturday 8th May. If this changes the availability you had indicated for the 27th March please let us know.

It’s set to be a busy year ahead for the Great Britain teams with two British & Irish Cup Tournaments set to be played in 2021 (8th May & 5-8th August), along with the Confederations Cup (5th-8th August) and a Tri-Nations in South Africa (December).

This year registration is open to all interested players but Great Britain coaches and selectors will then shortlist players and invite a limited number to trial due to covid-19 restrictions. If you do not think the coaches will have seen you play we would recommend that you ask an appropriate representative in your region to speak to the coaches on your behalf. We ask that you pick a time for trialling and if successful we’ll aim to inform players one week prior to the trial date.

This trial is designed for players who were not part of the EPS squad in 2019/2020. If you are unsure please contact

The rescheduled trial will take place on Sunday 17th January 2021 ay Mabley Green in London.
