Please help us to keep everyone safe by following the guidance. Government has made it clear that if guidance is repeatedly breached, exemptions can be taken away which would result in rugby stopping.
With the return of fixtures to the rugby calendar under the new adaptations, we understand that some clubs will return to matches. However, no club or player is under any obligation to return to contact matches from Friday 18 December.
If you are playing matches, this weekend, please remember that in line with Government guidance car sharing is not permitted. In a tier 2 or tier 3 area, car sharing is not permitted with anyone from outside your household.
In a tier 1 area, avoid car sharing with someone from outside your household or your support bubble.
Travel in coaches and minibuses is permitted as long as they are Covid-secure, i.e. seating arrangements must be considered to maximise distance between people in the vehicle – this may mean using more than one coach or minibus, for example. Teams should check for local travel restrictions in their area before departing as these will vary depending on the coronavirus alert level. You should not travel into or out of tier 3 areas to take part in sporting activities or access sport facilities.
