Community Rugby competitions set to return in July

by Brumbies Media
ACT & Southern NSW Rugby are pleased to confirm a return to rugby competitions from 18 July, following further easing of COVID-19 restrictions from the ACT Government.
 Contact training will return in the ACT from 19 June (today), and in NSW from 1 July, giving teams time to prepare for games to commence.
Over 60 clubs across the region returned to formal training 1 June, with participation levels tracking positively towards rugby resuming next month.
 All teams have been adhering to the guidelines around training and hygiene standards set out in the, ‘Return to Play Framework’, a critical measure in Rugby’s return moving forward.
 Specific details on each competition’s draw will be confirmed at a later date.
 Plus500 Brumbies Deputy CEO & General Manager of Community Rugby Craig Leseberg said:
 “We’re excited about returning here in the ACT and our surrounding regions.
“Our clubs have been fantastic in sticking to the set protocols, which has allowed us to take the next step in getting our competitions up and running.
“For Rugby to continue and for us to see games being played every weekend in 2020, we all have to do our bit and continue to follow the guidelines to make sure everyone involved is safe; players, coaches and all of our wonderful volunteers.
 “We’re continuing to work with Government officials both locally and nationally, as well as Rugby Australia, and we look forward to confirming each competitions’ draw in the near future.”
