England Rugby Statement Regarding Coronavirus

The government today announced that there is no change at the moment to sporting events. Given this, league games will continue to be played as usual.  Unless a club has made different arrangements as relevant to their own circumstances.

Should this position change, we will notify league organisers and will provide an update on the England Rugby website – https://www.englandrugby.com/news/article/important-update-for-clubs–coronavirus-covid-19

We do appreciate that there is some concern about games taking place at this point in time so it is a club’s call if they want to cancel games, etc.

There have been a number of general enquiries regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our guidance at this time is for clubs to follow the Government’s advice to inform any decisions as it is updated on a regular basis.

It would be helpful if you could also let your local RDO know if you are aware of anyone at your club testing positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19).

We will be guided by the RFU and will update you on any changes as they happen.
