Following Government advice, the RFU has taken the decision to suspend all Rugby with immediate affect. This is the message from the RFU:
“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.”
We are having a meeting of our very own COBRA Team this afternoon to review all the implications for the Club and will keep you updated on the Website and Social Media. However, we can confirm that the Club will not be open for ANY Rugby related activities from today until these restrictions are lifted. If anyone needs further information, please contact myself (Steve Ward) on Chairman@sprufc.co.uk and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible. Please be patient, as the next couple of days will be busy for your management team.
