RFU suspends ALL rugby due to threat of Coronavirus

This evening, the RFU became the latest governing body to bring a halt to all fixtures for the foreseeable future because of the threat of the Coronavirus.

It is hoped the season will resume at some stage in the future, but that remains to be seen.

Here is the RFU’s statement in full:

Following government advice, the RFU will suspend all rugby activity in England, at both professional and community level.

Rugby activity includes club training, league and cup matches plus rugby education courses from 17 March until 14 April 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.   

As soon as we know when the season is able to resume, we will of course let you know.

We thank all our sponsors for supporting the club and we hope we will be able to continue with our sport as soon as possible.
