IMPORTANT UPDATE: RETURN TO COMMUNITY RUGBY

IMPORTANT UPDATE: RETURN TO COMMUNITY RUGBY

North Harbour Rugby has been in discussions with our various community leadership committees.  Please see the latest update in regards to a return to community Rugby.

 

In line with MoH and NZR advice, on the provision that Auckland moves to L2 at 11.59pm on Sunday, August 30, Rugby can continue with the following restrictions in place.

  • COVID-19 Level 2 Return to Training Requirements must be in place before trainings can resume.  This must be approved by the Provincial Union.  These have been sent to Clubs and Schools and will be followed up by Nick Mulvaney or Bill Wigglesworth.
  • Training can resume from Mon 31st but teams can only train in bubbles of no more than 10 (including coaching and support staff).  For the avoidance of doubt this means you cannot train as a full squad.
  • Contact training is permitted but you must ensure that these bubbles of no more than 10 do not mix.
  • Adherence to strict hygiene protocols is critical.

Please see below on what this means for Senior, Secondary School and Junior Club Rugby:

JUNIOR RUGBY

In consultation with the Junior Rugby committee it has been decided that no rugby training will go ahead during the current Level 2 rules in Auckland which currently limit gatherings to 10 people.  The Junior committee has agreed to meet again early next week to make a final decision on when, if at all, junior rugby may be able to go ahead again.

 

We will continue to update our planning as we receive further information from the Government and NZR.  We acknowledge that this has not been the easiest road home, and if a Club, School or team decide not to play anymore Rugby this season, that is totally understandable given the circumstances. People and community safety, trusting the experts advice, and ensuring the plan meets the needs of our community, will continue to drive our decision making.
