Merit League Rugby - e mail to Fixture Secretaries
« on: July 16, 2020, 02:40:05 PM »
YORKSHIRE RUGBY FOOTBALL UNION LIMITED
Dear Colleagues,
County Office:
Griffin House, 24 Station Road, Morley, Leeds LS27 8JW
YRFU Merit Leagues and Tables 2020-21
 Following on from our letter of the 26th June we write by way of an update.
It is our understanding that RFU fixtures are likely to be issued this week. These will be provisional indicative dates, as there is no indication yet of a commencement date for Rugby.
Indeed, in the light of the RFU Announcement on Friday, that ”in the short term it is likely that the format of rugby the community game is able to play will be a modified version, not the full 15 a side game,” meaningful league rugby could be some way off.
If you have not seen the article in question, here is the link
https://www.englandrugby.com/news/article/return-to-recreational-team-sport-framework.
The link within the article https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19- guidance-on-phased-return-of-sport-and-recreation/return-to-recreational-team-sport-framework to the Government guidelines should also be considered as this sets out the measures to be considered/taken to allow team sports to recommence.
There is, in our view, no point in arranging merit league fixtures at the present time, particularly as we have not yet finally formulated the playing arrangements for the different leagues.
We will communicate further, when we have some clarity from the RFU on their plans, and we will arrange “virtual” fixture secretaries’ meetings for each league when we will explain the playing arrangements and when fixtures can be arranged. We will start with the Premiership and move downwards from there.
It would be appreciated if clubs could provide e-mail addresses, for any changes to their fixture secretary since last year, to competitions@yorkshirerfu.co.uk.
