The official guidance we have received from the RFU is that there can be respectful continuation of rugby at all levels this weekend.
The overwhelming opinions shared so far within the game, are that teams and supporters want to come together to honour Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to be united in our grief as we express sorrow at her passing.
Rugby, at its heart, is about community and bringing people together, in good times and in sad. Rugby clubs are a source of strength and support during times of uncertainty, and we hope that by enabling games and other rugby activity to go ahead this weekend, with families and friends congregating it will help us all to unite at this time of national mourning.
Our first XV travel to Hertford on Saturday where there will be a minute’s silence before the lunch and also before the game.
As a club we will be holding a minute of silent reflection on Sunday at 10.45am during our mini/youth/ladies training.
We will update about next weekend’s activities as soon as we are able.
