Not sure why, still no scrums, or mauls.
They can practice lifting in the line-out.

Don’t want anything that can result in face to face contact for longer than a second or two

They can tackle and ruck! My front 5 forwards just want to do something more than run with a ball which isn’t their greatest skill!

I truly hope the Longeaton rep was being overly pessimistic. For a certain amount of time no sport was allowed. Then when adapted versions of tennis, golf and cricket (it was the summer) returned there was a real upsurge in the numbers wanting to participate in these sports. Golf is struggling to cope with the increased demand. My local cricket club has gone from struggling to get 4 teams out over a weekend last season to getting 6 teams out for each of the last 4 weekends. People want to play sport. Whilst rugby cannot return at present to its normal state the new Stage D regulations allow an awful lot of what happens in a rugby match to take place now. Scrums, mauls and lineouts are integral to the game and they will be back just not at the moment. Positive, innovative clubs and coaches will ensure their numbers will survive and thrive. Negative, closed minded clubs and coaches will ensure their doomsday prophesy is fulfiled

According to the latest Covid 19 newsletter there will be no rugby in October. Their next review will come on 1st October. Unless something dramatic happens with Covid even if we move to E on the road map then it will have to be at least a further four weeks before any rugby can be considered. That is looking at December at the least.

No. 
That's looking at 28th November for the first match of a 22 match season. I believe that this is the RFU/Sweeny's new target.
If we move to Stage E on 1st Oct we could move to Stage F 4 weeks after that and resume playing at the beginning of November but, that may need a bit of a push.

28th November for league rugby to start would be good, 1st November even better.

I would assume crowds would be allowed, masks and social distancing (if required) unless eating/drinking or smoking.

Sounds like progress.

I do not see how we can we start the league without at least some pre-season matches.
So for league by 28th Nov we would need competitive XV a side play from 1 Nov.
Which means stage E training before them.
If we got stage E by September 14th - and F by October 1st we could be playing league matches by November 1st - but I am not sure that is likely.

In a recent visit Sweeney was of the opinion that Rugby would start in January the best option would be for a 45 game season rolling 2020/21 and 2021/22 into one season. This would give enough time for the Premiership and Championship to decide their future structures and avoid three seasons of chaos.

Paragraph below from today's. community game update.

"In line with the above announcement regarding move to Stage D, and with no set date on when we will reach Stage F, we can confirm that there will be no competitive rugby restart in October for adult or age grade rugby unless there is a dramatic improvement in the prevalence of the virus in the community."


We have to get to stage E by 1st November, to be able to play again in December. Every week we don't get the Stage E in November pushes restart of full contact competitive games back by the same time frame. So if Stage E isn't here by the 21st November it will be 2021 before we see competitive club rugby. Some Clubs in local lockdown area's are being told to either stay at C or even go back to B.

The 45 game season has been rejected by NCA Clubs in the survey last month. Our best hope IMHO is a 22 game season starting December or January and running through to June. Level 2's daft plans remain a sticking point. 

Crowds can return to watch inter-Club Ready4Rugby and other Touch Rugby now, however, they must follow the Government guidelines on social distancing which means more than 6 in a group ONLY if they are from two households. This could be difficult to manage, but not impossible.

Think the RFU will be watching Scotland closely - grassroots rugby is back from 31st Oct there.

Here in France, we've just tonight played our first pre season friendly - full on, everything as normal but for some really silly rules about wearing masks as we walked into the changing rooms. We've another on Saturday and the season begins for Federal Leagues on 13 September. I'm not really sure how or why considering the fuss the French government are making about the continuing danger of the virus but there you go.

If the Scots league matches start at end of October they must surely allow the clubs at least 4 -6 weeks to physically prepare the players before they are into full on matches. So does that mean they can scrum and maul and have opposed lineouts by mid/end September? Would love to know what science those decisions have been made on and why/how it differs from the science the RFU, WRU and IRFU appear to be are following?
