HAMPSHIRE RFU have received a number of reports of clubs not training within RFU guidance and in breach of government policy.

As a reminder to all coaches and club officials, we are currently at Stage B on the Return to Community Rugby Roadmap.

Stage B allows players to train in groups up to a maximum of six people.

Social distancing guidance should be followed (currently 1 metre plus), there should be no face to face or close contact and equipment sharing should be kept to a minimum.

Under no circumstances should there be any contact training.

This includes tackling, scrum, ruck, maul and lineout.

It is essential that clubs follows this guidance.

Non-compliance puts clubs and coaches in breach of government policy and RFU guidance and could invalidate insurance.

Clubs must also follow any local government lockdown restrictions that may be implemented.

If a CB or the RFU are made aware of any breaches then charges under Rule 5.12 will be considered against the Coach responsible for the session and/or the Club itself.

Yours, in rugby

Director of Rugby WRFC
