Announcement: Suspension of Rugby activity.

You will have seen the announcement yesterday that Covid Tiers have been increased across the country.
While Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin have increased to Tier 3, we are an island surrounded by Tier 4 counties.
We are seeing increasing case numbers and our schools are delaying term opening to reduce risk.
In this light and having consulted other Shropshire clubs we have decided to suspend rugby activities for the next two weeks. We will consult again and communicate with you on the 14th January when we should have a further national update.
Thank you once again for your support and understanding during this time.
Phil Davidson Chairman Mini and Junior Rugby.

Following government advice, the RFU will suspend all rugby activity in England, at both professional and community level.

Rugby activity includes club training, league and cup matches plus rugby education courses from 17 March until 14 April subject to continued review.

The decision has been taken following government advice in the interests of players, coaches, referees, volunteers, supporters and the wider rugby union community.  

Where possible, players at all levels are encouraged to maintain their own personal fitness and keep active during this time, while following government guidelines about safe distance and safe exercise environments.

The RFU will continue to review and monitor government advice and will provide detailed updates on the impact to the season in the coming weeks.
