Just listened to Steve Grainger speaking in today’s RFU Coronavirus update. The League restructure (if agreed by the RFU Council in November) is being deferred a year to at least 22/23. The RFU are still pressing the Government to allow a return to competitive rugby and that is unlikely to include the adaptations seen in the new Women’s season as Clubs have indicated their preference for proper rugby. He then suggested that any return is likely to focus on localised fixtures to minimise travel. Any return will depend on how Clubs can provide safe changing facilities and how safe clubhouses can be.

Not the announcement we all wanted but it is Government not the RFU which has to make the decision.

If the adapted laws mean a quicker return to 15-a-side rugby how sad that those who speak for clubs, and probably no longer play the game, are potentially inhibiting the return to play. The adapted laws allow; 15 a side teams, contested scrums, lineouts, mauls, tackling and rucking- a lot more than the ready4rugby rules allow. How many knew the details of adapted laws before they decided against them? The game should be doing all it can to return. Sadly the old farts label extends beyond the RFU Council.

Good point, Marigold! As a Club Secretary I don't remember being asked that question in any depth. It may have been part of the NCA Consultation in August but I can't see it in my copy!

In my humble opinion the ladies game should be no different. The issue is Transmission of illness !!!!
So will all clubs below Premiership be required to do tests ( too expensive ) with no current revenue from very wealthy God Fathers???

I would be very interested to hear from players as to how they feel about full contact Rugby.

should we just get on with it and to hell with the consequences. or abort the season and start next Autumn and in the meantime do as Worthing , Bar open Sunday roasts, and do as much to entertain members throughout the winter. Therefore no player costs, ( I assume ) depending on contracts.

Oh so many Challenges. less sponsor exposure on match days etc. God I am now getting depressed by just writing this.


What ever happens good luck to all our wonderful clubs and please stay safe

xxxxx

The NCA confirms it is looking at a Cup competition under modified laws but finding ways to include front-row players even without scrums. https://www.ncarugby.com/announcements/nca-rugby-announce-plans-for-cup-competition/

Sounds like a chance for a lot of back-rowers to try their hand at propping

RFU have advised clubs to revert to A on the road map so no training at all.

What do you expect? That the RFU advise clubs to break the law? New regulations forbid meeting up with more than one other person outside for exercise. That is exactly what stage A says as well. I get that we're all frustrated about what is happening, but you can hardly expect the RFU to do anything else.

The people who are officially n charge of decisions are

The Rt Hon Oliver Dowden CBE MP  Secretary of State at DDCMS
Nigel Huddleston MP Minister for Sport, Tourism and Heritage
Baroness Barran MBE Minister of State for Civil Society and DCMS responsible for Culture, sports and arts sector recovery from COVID-19

I would write to them.
