COMMUNITY GAME GUIDANCE

The RFU has announced a national roadmap to support a return to community rugby activity. This roadmap consists of six stages, Stage A relating to individual training with one other person, moving through to Stage F when there can be a return to competitive matches against other teams. We are currently at Stage B following the government’s announcement of 28 May.

COMMUNITY GAME SUPPORT

The RFU is hosting a series of support webinars so that volunteers can gain access to information that could help their clubs.

The England Rugby Club Hub is an online group buying platform designed as a one stop shop for rugby related products for the rugby community to access at competitive rates. The Hub now has a dedicated area for Rugby Restart where clubs can access the products they may need to aid with the reopening of their facility.
