Following the RFU announcement yesterday I wanted to re-iterate what the CRFU Management Board have been doing behind the scenes.
We have been led to believe that if the go ahead is given by the Government to play, RFU will sort out fixtures. Our question would be: “Is this in the interest of our Cornish clubs, if not what do we offer as an alternative?”
We have already started to put together return to play merit tables and once we have had a chat with Competitions committee we will come back to you with a structure, which you will either welcome or we can tweak.
Our priority is still to have 28 Cornish clubs playing rugby when we return to normality. In the meantime if you have embraced ready for rugby, keep up the good work.
I’ll be in touch again next week with an update.
Also be assured that I am in contact with Steve Grainger, RFU Rugby Development Director on both the phone and by e mail. I did suggest to him that perhaps we could be used as a pilot using the laws the ladies are using in the Allianz Prem, he was going to carry that forward ……..We are trying to cover all bases. In the meanwhile stay safe and fit.
