Coronavirus: All club and community rugby postponed until April 18

New Zealand Rugby has postponed all club and community rugby until April 18 to combat coronavirus.

The decision is effective immediately.

“The postponement includes all rugby matches,” said a statement from New Zealand Rugby. “Non-contact training activities can continue at least in the short term while we continue to monitor the situation with the Ministry of Health.”

“All team-based activity will be adapted to comply with the limits the Ministry has set. This includes minimising person-to-person contact and maintaining hygiene standards including not sharing drink bottles, washing hands and regularly cleaning rugby equipment.

“It is a difficult decision for our organisation to make but it is important that we do this in the interests of the health of all rugby participants.”
