The RFU have published their plan for a phased return to rugby to eventually play the game as we used to know it. Training has resumed, and subject to each step on government’s roadmap being achieved, progress towards contact fixtures and a full season of rugby for 2021/22 from September.
The Return to Community Rugby Roadmap aligns to follow steps on the government roadmap. We are all keen to get back playing the game we love, however the focus is on building players up gradually, re-engaging and player retention.
We are currently on D1 (apologies for image, RFU have not updated yet!). Further details will be published by the RFU over the forthcoming weeks, regarding subsequent phases, and any permitted summer activities.
