As always, we welcome new players with open arms. However, these days several protocols must be observed before anyone can begin to train to ensure the safety of all players and coaches. The traditional ‘walk down the lane and jump in’ is no longer possible in the new Covid-19 & contact tracing world. Each player will have contact the club before they come to training.

Our Covid-19 Health and Safety Team have set up the pitch-side with cleaning stations, spray guns and hand sanitizers to comply with the various protocols from our Return To Rugby plan.
If you wish to know more about our Covid-19 response, please contact our Covid-19 Safety Officer Jonathan O’ Toole.
