IRFU Participation Rugby Operations Manager David Keane said:

“These are the first of a wider series of support webinars we’ll be making available to clubs and schools over the coming weeks and months. The feedback on this format has been really positive and they provide a new way for the IRFU and provinces to engage directly with clubs and schools.”

“COVID-19 Safety Planning is the first consideration for anyone who wants to be get ready for rugby. Once those plans are in place, non-contact rugby will be the first format of the game we’re likely to see up and running. The content of these webinars reflect this and are designed to get our communities back in action as soon as permitted.”
