UPDATE RUGBY WA – COVID-19 – Return to Play

Dear Nedlands Club Members,

The last message I sent outlined the steps needed for Community Rugby to start getting back to normal, the first step in this process occurred last Sunday with the State Government lifting social distancing bans from no more than 2 people together at any one time to now 10 people together training in a group. 

While this is a positive step it does not allow any form of contact, wrestling or sharing of equipment which translates into getting together in groups of 10 and running at least 1.5m apart without passing a rugby ball between those attending. A bit short of a good session but at least a few more can participate together.

The important thing about any return to play is the NAtional Cabinet meeting on the 8th May, where this will be discussed nationally with an indication that further easing of restrictions would be made at that time.

RugbyWA has circulated a lengthy discussion of steps going forward these included
