Well an adapted version & we have everything crossed, just in case!

We are pleased to inform you that, last night, The RFU announced "that Government has today approved our submission to return to 15-a-side contact rugby, with some adaptations.

Further detail on these adaptations and associated laws will follow tomorrow. However, they are briefly summarised below:

• There will be no scrums or mauls in the game
• Where the game would restart with a scrum, this will be replaced with a free kick
• A minimum of five and a maximum of seven players from each team are required to form a lineout."

This means we can return to training from Saturday 5th December 2020. As before this will take place at Alexandra Park, Tolworth, meeting at 10:45am for 11:am start.

Please confirm on here if you can make it?

The RFU announcement went further;
• Clubs can resume adapted training for 15-a-side contact rugby again from this Wednesday. Further detail to follow tomorrow.

• Clubs can resume friendly fixtures from Friday 18 December - this is to allow players to prepare properly and safely, having not been training over the past month.

• Clubs can still play Ready4Rugby if they have matches coming up from 2 December to 18 December and beyond. There is no obligation to play adapted 15-a-side contact fixtures.

Further Government guidance is expected today on travel, changing, spectators and clubhouses"

As soon as we get more we will circulate it accordingly, but please check back regularly here for this & everything Racal Decca RFC.
