All rugby suspended in areas with local restrictions

Following the additional local restrictions announced by Welsh Government for Llanelli town, Swansea and Cardiff, all community rugby training in those County Boroughs will be suspended until further notice in line with government timelines.

This means there will be no sanctioned Club or Female Hub rugby training activity in those areas from 6pm this evening (Saturday) for Llanelli clubs and 6pm Sunday for Cardiff and Swansea clubs.

Whilst we acknowledge that schools are remaining open, we want to play our part in limiting community transmission at this time, and our priority here is player welfare and public health.

Community rugby is currently suspended in all areas where there are local restrictions – Caerphilly, RCT, Blaenau Gwent, Bridgend, Merthyr and Newport in addition to Llanelli, Cardiff and Swansea added today.

Our clubs have been patient and resilient to date, and we know that you will want to play your part in helping the local communities get back to normal as quickly as possible.

We would also remind Clubs and Hubs that travel into and out of these areas is not permitted without good reason, and travelling to attend training would not be considered a valid reason.

We will continue to review these measures on a regular basis and in line with Welsh Government information.

In relation to the use of rugby clubs for social purposes, this also needs to be managed in accordance with Welsh Government guidance and with the required Covid-19 hygiene and Track and Trace protocols in place.

This change of guidelines relates to ALL community rugby.
