Return to rugby update

All clubs in NI are presently at Step 1 of the IRFU Return to Rugby Roadmap, with no training or playing permitted. Following last Thursday's IRFU announcement clubs in ROI can move to Stage 3 from 1 July, with non-contact training permitted. We are now working on the assumption that NI clubs will follow shortly and are making plans to begin training as soon as we are given the green light by the NI Executive and Sport NI.

Key actions to date

  • Our Covid Safety Officer Aaron Edgar has submitted our Safety Plan to the IRFU for approval

  • We have appointed 'Covid Compliance Officers' who will help ensure we meet all safety standards at each training session

  • The coaches have prepared training plans to comply with social distancing requirements

Next steps before we can start training 

  • Approval of our Safety Plan by IRFU

  • Complete Covid Compliance Officer training

  • Issue 'Covid Safety' education pack to all members

  • Obtain PPE, hand sanitisers/cleansers, signage etc.

  • Set up an online system to allow players to pre-register for each training session

  • Set up a record-keeping log for training attendance (for contact tracing)

  • Confirm training venues and dates

We will keep you posted on developments on this fast moving situation and if you have any queries please refer them to Aaron Edgar, our Covid Safety Officer at
