Grand Slam winners Fiona Coghlan and Nora Stapelton have returned the Women's RBS 6 Nations trophy to Chief Executive John Feehan at the Six Nations offices in Dublin.
While each programme will contain the same core principles, each will be unique to reflect the club or school's vision, ambitions, resources, commitment and culture.

Michael Cunningham, IRFU Chairman of Youth Rugby, said: "Club rugby has grown larger and stronger and the Rugby Faculty provides a great opportunity for clubs and schools to benefit from a formal and organised rugby curriculum from top to bottom."
Gerry Drennan, the Union's Chairman of Schools Rugby, added: "Schools have the ideal infrastructure and experience to build a curriculum for rugby which will develop their players through a structured progressive programme."
