Hardest thing at my club is, and always has been, retaining players going from the age groups through to the senior sides. We lose around 50% of each age group to university rugby, with players heading off to every corner of the country to study, but that leaves 50% who are still in town when they're 17-19.
Somehow though, they seem to drift away from the club at this time, whether it's because they're moving out of home or have more work commitments, or just because their mates have left the club, it seems like they disappear for a few years and then slowly drift back in dribs and drabs.
I'm sure this will be a familiar experience for many.
