Members should understand that The Club could be held responsible/answerable to the SRU for the actions of its members in respect of any misconduct.

The Club will discourage from selection any player who repeatedly infringes this code, and in respect of any such player or member may hold an inquiry into alleged breach and suspend or expel from membership any serious offender.

Any action taken by The Club in respect of the above shall be without prejudice to any sanctions imposed on The Club or any of its members by the disciplinary sub-committee of the SRU
