The RFU Governance Committee have made the difficult decision that, with the exception of Premiership, Championship and Premier 15s rugby, no organised RFU or non-RFU Leagues including merit tables, adult or age grade competitions will be played before January 2021 at the earliest.

The Rugby Club can continue to organise non-contact fixtures with other clubs using Ready4Rugby and other touch rugby activity; and limited contact rugby training can also be continued.

The RFU is continuing a dialogue with government about moving to Stage E on the Roadmap, should we reach this point at any time before Christmas, competitive friendly matches could commence. 

Head Coach and General Manager Andy Appleyard commented: “It’s disappointing, but not unexpected. We are in the process of putting together proposals where we might play other clubs, either on a Saturday or under floodlights mid-week, using the Ready4Rugby format. What I can confirm is that on Saturday October 10th we will have another Club Rugby Festival, this time the social rugby teams will play in the morning with the 1st and 2nd team squad players battling it out in the afternoon. We are also planning an exciting event at Priory Park for the end of the month, which hopefully will be announced later this week”.
