Following on from our earlier post, we are pleased that the IRFU have added a ‘Competition Stage’ to the roadmap for club rugby. This allows us to work towards September as the start of the 20/21 Season, subject of course, to government guidance. The date has not been decided as yet but the given date will also factor in a minimum window of five weeks permitted for contact training ahead of a return to rugby matches.
The IRFU are also launching their KNOW > SHOW > GO campaign ahead of clubs resuming rugby activity. Clubs will be asked to:
- Know roles and responsibilities in preventing the spread of COVID-19
- Show respect for team mates around safe behaviour
- Go train well, then go home straight afterwards to allow team mates to train safely
