| Pitch side Care for 2023-2024 – Changes to Regulation 9
Last week Council voted in favour of changes to Regulation 9. From the 22/23 season all age grade contact matches and training sessions will require a level of pitch-side first aid that aligns with the RFU’s Pitch-side First Aid & Immediate Care Standards or a level determined by a club’s specific risk assessment. Similar changes will come into place for the adult game in 23/24. You can read an overview as well as a detailed guide here.
