Message from Chairman to club players/members:
As you will all no doubt be aware, following the Government’s announcement last night, the RFU have issued a statement confirming that all rugby activity – which categorially includes club training, league and cup matches, and also all rugby education courses – has been suspended from today (17 March) until Tuesday 14 April. This will be subject to continued review.
The decision has been taken following government advice in the interests of players, coaches, referees, volunteers, supporters and the wider rugby union community.
Where possible, players at all levels are encouraged to maintain their own personal fitness and keep active during this time, while following government guidelines about safe distance and safe exercise environments.
The RFU will continue to review and monitor government advice and will provide detailed updates on the impact to the season in the coming weeks.
Quite how this will affect us as a club in the immediate future is unclear, but we will monitor the situation and act on any further advice the RFU dispenses.
Please also be aware that the Association have taken the decision to close the clubhouse indefinitely at this time.
Please do try to follow all guidance given and keep safe.
