Senior Club Council Statement on Championships

The following statement was endorsed 
 by the Senior Club Council last week. 


Please share with your member clubs:


"Due to the ongoing pandemic and the timing of vaccine availability nationwide, the Senior Club Rugby National Council has elected to forego the formal organization of competitions towards a 2021 XVs National Championship event. Moving forward, the council is committed to the development of models for inter-union competition to provide a XVs championship structure for interested constituents.

This announcement does not affect any planning for a 2021 7s National Championship event. Preparation for a 2021 7s National Championship event will continue with the guidance of health officials until it is otherwise unreasonable or impracticable to organize. More information regarding 7s is to follow."

Rick Humm, Council Secretary
