Return To Rugby Roadmap

What does moving to stage C mean for your rugby team? 

Moving To Stage C

On Monday the 8th August the RFU updated the return to community roadmap to show a move from Stage B to Stage C. The move now enables the rugby community to recommence some larger group rugby activity, initially non-contact, subject to adherence with RFU guidance.

It must be noted that any return is now a decision for individual clubs to make and they must continue to follow government Covid-19 guidelines, along with any local government lockdown restrictions that may be introduced.

Only non-contact training permitted ✔
