For the start of the 2021/2022 season the RFU have introduced new data management standards for all records on their GMS system to meet the UK General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  This means that anyone who has a GMS record must login to their record and verify that the information held for them is least once every two years.

If you do not know your GMS username and/or password please follow these instructions from section (A) below. If you do know your GMS username and password please continue at section (B) of these instructions.
