Stage E on The Rugby Roadmap.
We are now at Stage E on the Return to Rugby Roadmap which allows contact fixtures under law variations permitted from 18th Dec 2020 . However even though there are restrictions around travelling between tiers for teams, referees are allowed to travel between tiers to facilitate the game. Please see all the guidance below.
The Law variations for the adapted game: Please note NO SCRUMS and NO MAULS
- Travel and leave in kit is probably best.
- No briefing in changing rooms or leaving the pitch at half time.
- Discourage any team huddles on the pitch
- It is the home clubs responsibility for ensuring all off pitch areas/activity are COVID secure.
