Code of Rugby

Code of Rugby

Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline, Sportsmanship

Whether you play for Southport, act as a coach or spectate as a parent, it's sometimes easy in 'the heat of battle' to forget the core values of rugby.

The RFU's CODE OF RUGBY reminds us to:

  • Play to win - but not at all costs.
  • Win with dignity, lose with grace.
  • Observe the laws and regulations of the game.
  • Respect opponents, referees and all participants.
  • Reject cheating, racism, violence and drugs.
  • Value volunteers and paid officials alike.
  • Enjoy the game!

Southport RFC is proud of its reputation for respect - let's keep it that way!
