2021 UPDATE #1:Unfortunately we are back under level 2 restrictions until at least 6.00am Sunday 7th March. This may have some clubs thinking about weigh-ins scheduled before then and beyond if the level remains at 2. As per 2020, we can continue albeit with the restrictions imposed under level 2. This means gatherings of 100 people max, social distancing where possible, contact tracing, good hygiene practices etc. This may not affect smaller clubs as much but our larger clubs will need to manage their gatherings accordingly. Below is a statement from Michael Winter at the WRU along with a guide to sport under level 2. If anyone has any questions please don’t hesitate to call Michael at the WRU or myself. Thanks everyone and keep safe.

Graham Wallace (WCJRB President)

Here we are again, back in an increased level of COVID lockdown. We have all been there, done this before so I am confident all clubs are across Government and NZR expectations are pre-season games and team trainings and doing required processes and protocols to ensure everyone is kept safe. Saturday nights announcement again impacts our preparations on club rugby so now more than ever we need to continue to be vigilant and follow the correct processes. Below is a link to the NZR COVID-19 Guidelines. Please refer to these heading into any club trainings, pre-season fixtures and close contact sessions. Here you will also find guides to changing sheds, match operations and club room under L2.
