1 min read

 

The Newfoundland and Labrador  Rugby Union’s submission to Public Health Newfoundland and Labrador  regarding the resumption of contact rugby has been approved. 

The NLRU announced that contact rugby is now sanctioned in the province.

This is an important step in our return to play plan, and there are numerous safeguards in place to ensure our players, coaches and referees’ safety and well being. Commencing next week, our clubs will undergo two weeks of contact conditioning in their practices.

Our club’s senior men’s team will then play exhibition matches against each other on October 3rd for the Collins Cup  this will provide a safe transition back to contact games for our players. 

The Baymen, Dogs and Swilers senior men’s teams will kick off round robin play for the Goodyear Cup on September 27th, while the championship match will be played on October 25th.

The NLRU would like to thank Sport NL and Public Health for their assistance throughout this process. We look forward to seeing g contact rugby back on our pitches.
