The aim of this research was to critically analyse if and how amateur Rugby clubs in South Wales have implemented organisational change due to external and intemal environmental trigger factors, such as the restructuring of the V/elsh National League. The study focuses on key organisation elements, with a specific look at archetypes in relation to organisational objectives. The precise research question is approached by the critical evaluation of existing theories of organisational change followed by a study of several V/elsh amateur Rugby clubs. These studies conclude in identifring a deficiency in the processes of organisational change in V/elsh amateur Rugby clubs. The study is qualitative in nature with data being collected through interviews and various documents and text. An inductive, leaming approach is also adopted for the research. The study of existing theories of organisational change and the change processes allow for a depth of knowledge to be utilised in studying the organisations that participated in the research. As a result of the study, recommendations for both amateur rugby clubs and the V/elsh Rugby Union are made to secure the development of the game of Rugby Union in Wales on both aNational and International Level.
