we must remain at Stage D2 on the return to rugby roadmap. Government has not given permission for community rugby to move to Stage E1 yet.
This means that, until further notice, no scrums or mauls are permitted in either training or fixtures.
The decision applies to all levels in the men's and women's game below the Gallagher Premiership, Allianz Premier 15's and Greene King IPA Championship (which follow elite return to play protocols.)
Updates will be provided when available.
