The Welsh Rugby Union have been proactive about exploring avenues to bring normality back to grassroots Rugby. They have now announced that games of Touch Rugby (including junior games of Tag Rugby) are to resume with immediate effect.
We all heard the grave and worrying news that the entire season was in jeopardy for the non-professional clubs up and down the UK, despite the capacity being there to train in a rather limited but safe setup. Although these major changes will be taking place a stones throw away, it cannot be guaranteed that the rest of the UK will take the same initiative.
The WRU also confirmed that Touch and Tag Rugby games will only take place between teams in the same catchment/district. It has also been stressed that each club must follow 'strict safety and hygiene protocols' in order to keep this opportunity open. No spectators, players must arrive in match-ready kits and social distancing must be adhered to by staff/coaches not directly involved in the match.
So what do you think? Is this a step in the right direction or the least that we can expect with the news lockdown ending this coming week?
