Wales Women coaches, in conjunction with the regional community teams, will run a pre-season training and playing programme to underpin the international game.
Pre-season starts in July with an intensive conditioning and skills programme run by national and regional coaches and managed by the regional community teams, with a development playing programme in place for the Dragons region.
Phillips added: “As coaches we have identified a number of talented players coming through the Dragons U18 pathway but without a Premiership club in the region currently to sustain a competitive player base, we feel it’s important to run a transition programme this season to develop those players for the future. Where appropriate, senior Dragons players will be invited to play for another region for this season only.”
