IRFU Update on Tag Rugby Activity

IRFU Update on Tag Rugby Activity

The Government of Ireland have updated public health measures in response to a recent surge in cases of COVID-19.

Irish Rugby is committed to stopping the spread of COVID-19 and will adhere to these measures while continuing to provide a health and well-being outlet for their community.

Localised IRFU sanctioned tag rugby and touch rugby events are classified as sporting events and may take place behind closed doors in line with the latest public health measures.

This means that numbers are limited to 15 players per pitch per session while adhering to the appropriate player/coach/COVID-19 Club Compliance Officer ratios.

For queries on tag rugby, please email tag@irfu.ie.

Full details of the IRFU Recommendations For Clubs are available at https://www.irishrugby.ie/2020/08/19/85318/
