Coronavirus (COVID-19)

(Last Updated 03/04/2020)

Rugby authorities throughout Australia have made the collective decision to further postpone Community Rugby until at least 1 June.

All Rugby activity including matches, training and face-to-face education courses will not be conducted during this period.

Given the uncertainty surrounding the length of time government restrictions will be in place to combat the spread of COVID-19, Rugby Australia and NSW Rugby are not in a position to provide a specific return date. They will continue to review this position as further updates from government and health authorities are received.

Hopefully the below photo highlights from the 2019 Grand Final  can help bring some cheer!

Stay safe (and well)

Rugby Australia have issued announcements, effective immediately, that all training and matches are to cease until the first week in May.

Further communication on when training and games are to resume will be provided as we receive updates from the NSW Suburban Rugby Union (Subbies).

Stay safe (and well)

To all volunteers players, coaches, managers and anyone that brings the players to training.
Please do not attend training if:
– You have been medically confirmed as having Coronavirus; and or
– You exhibit any symptoms associated with the Coronavirus such as sore throat, temperature, and influenza type symptoms; and or
– You have been in close contact with a confirmed case of the Coronavirus.

In all scenarios above, please contact your manager and communicate the situation. If you don’t know your manager, please contact either myself, Ken Stevenson or Colin Baggott.

Current advice states that everyone should practice good hygiene to protect against infections. Good hygiene includes:

– washing your hands often with soap and water
– using a tissue and cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze

At the end of the day we need to look out for each other, so it is each person’s responsibility to look out for your fellow teammates. More information can be found at;…/novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov

In addition, the club will be asking players to bring their own water bottles. The club will have water provided to fill / refill your own bottle. Consider labeling your bottle to minimise risk of using someone else’s bottle. Safe hygiene practices for strappers, Physio’s and Canteen staff will be provided.

We hope you understand the intent behind these changes and are able to abide by these changes, effective immediately.

As the situation develops, we are in contact with NSW Suburban Rugby Union (Subbies), to understand the evolving protocols, and they have provided Rugby Australia’s latest information pack (last updated 13/03/20).

Currently we are still going ahead with the trial matches, unless advised otherwise by Subbies, or having confirmed cases in our club or others.

Yours in rugby,
