YOUR CHANCE TO JOIN THE DEBATE ON RUGBY'S FUTURE

Rugby union is emerging from months of turmoil as it starts to cope with the challenges of the new professional era. The future, however, remains uncertain and the game faces important decisions over its future.

A seminar in London this month will offer everyone within the sport, from players and coaches to administrators and fans, a chance to discuss the state of the game.

The seminar, organised by Rugby News magazine in association with the Independent and SBC Warburg, will be held at the QE2 Conference Centre, Westminster on Friday 28 February.

Entitled "Rugby's Future - a discussion on the state of the game", the seminar will be attended by leading figures throughout the sport.

Speakers will include Nick Farr-Jones, the former Australia captain; Tony Hallett, the secretary of the Rugby Football Union; Cliff Morgan, the legendary former British Lion and Wales international; and Dan Rooney, president of the Pittsburgh Steelers American football club.

A registration fee of pounds 29.50 includes mid-morning coffee, lunch and afternoon tea for delegates. The seminar will start at 9.15 and conclude at approximately 5.30 or 6.00.
