All rugby suspended
The following statement was received from the RFU yesterday evening:
“Following government advice today, the Rugby Football Union (RFU) will suspend all rugby activity in England, at both professional and community level, including club training, league and cup matches plus rugby education courses from Tuesday 17 March until Tuesday 14 April, subject to continued review. (since updated and season has now been declared over)
The decision has been taken following government advice, in the interests of players, coaches, referees, volunteers, supporters and the wider rugby union community.
Where possible, players at all levels are encouraged to maintain their own fitness and keep active during this time, while following government guidelines about safe distance and safe exercise environments.
We will continue to review and monitor government advice and will provide detailed updates on the impact to the season in the coming weeks”
This means that ALL home and away fixtures are cancelled for this period, as well as all Youth and Mini’s matches and training.
bar opening is under review but is highly likely to also be closed or open but with very limited hours.
It is likely that all arrangements from 15 April through May will also be cancelled, but we will update when decisions are made.
