A huge welcome back to everyone associated with RGSHW rugby. It has undoubtedly been a strange and surreal time recently and it will be fantastic to finally see all the pupils back in school with us next week.

It is a good opportunity to update everyone on the upcoming RGSHW rugby season and the current situation in relation to Covid. The RFU released the latest ‘return to play’ guidelines a few weeks ago and last week they announced that clubs/schools can move onto Stage D in that process.

Stage D means we are allowed to coach adaptive touch games, Ready4Rugby Games and continue with our technical core skill work within the training environment. We have also now been given permission to play touch games externally and will be updating parents/students as to what that means for the start of the season as soon as we have clarification. In line with the RFU guidelines, we will be taking the necessary precautions to ensure players are able to train and play safely.

If you would like to see the RFU ‘return to play’ guidelines in more detail, please link to website with all the information.
