Rugby & Coronavirus

We have been contacted by several clubs regarding the effect a major outbreak of the virus will have on completing the season in the South West.

It’s very difficult to put in place any contingency before we know the extent of any outbreak and we have a very limited number of weeks left in the season in which to re-arrange fixtures anyway. We are in contact with the RFU and will be guided by them, if and when, any restrictions are placed upon us.

In the meanwhile, as a League Committee, we ask you contact Public Health England when it comes to notification of a virus outbreak in a club or amongst its wider membership. You should then contact your League Secretary.    

We ask that you also heed the latest government advice on this virus link
