Ciaran O’Brien is the new Chair of the Competitions Committee and has asked that we share this letter with all club members, players and officials.
Dear Hon Sec/Fixture Secretary,
I hope you and all your club members are well and staying healthy.
Competitive sport is vital, particularly in this environment for both physical and mental well-being, and it is Leinster Rugby’s priority to ensure we facilitate this.
The Rugby and Competitions Committees are committed to providing competitive fixtures whilst at the same time protecting our participants and their families. The league and cup structures, including promotion and relegation are key to this strategy, and where necessary Leinster Rugby will be flexible whilst adhering to HSE guidelines. Whilst postponements and cancellations are inevitable during the Covid-19 pandemic we must strive to be creative to guarantee the integrity of our competitions.
We ask that all clubs do their utmost to fulfil fixtures.
Chair, Leinster Rugby Competitions Committee.
