New NCA Website
Over the last few months we have worked with Talking Rugby Union (TRU) to redesign our website. TRU will be responsible for the site and its ongoing management and it will go live on Friday 29th September. The site can be accessed through the same link
The new site will enable us to improve our communication with all our stakeholders. It will work across all platforms and, in particular, will be mobile friendly. It will retain the information from the current site but will add a lot news content promoting our clubs including video clips and photos of matches.
If you have any feedback or ideas, please contact Mike or Alan.
