New SRU Guidelines – 10th Oct

Covid Updates | 10th Oct 2020

What they said :-

Scottish Rugby’s Board has today supported a recommendation by the Scottish Rugby Council to delay the planned return to competitive rugby, at all levels of the club and school game, until January 2021 at the earliest.

This week’s announcement by the Scottish Government to pause all outdoor contact sport for over 18s, with the exception of professional sport, until Sunday 25 October across five regional health boards, aligned with its previous decision to delay moving to Phase 4 of its COVID-19 recovery Route Mapuntil at least 15 October means Scottish Rugby’s timetable to progress its own Return to Rugby Roadmap will be further delayed.

As a consequence of Scottish Rugby remaining at Stage 4 of its Roadmap for a further period of time

Full statement

What does that mean for Stewartry RFC :-

Basically for Stewartry RFC nothing changes!! Our NHS health board is not under restrictions on rugby so our senior rugby training, Midi training and Mini training can all continue at stage 4 (limited contact training).

The only impact on SRFC is their return to rugby fixtures is now delayed (due Nov) to Jan 2021.
