- Schools rugby will have to wait until February 8 for a return to training.
- This return to training and other activities will be based on Covid-19 infection rates.
- SA Rugby and the South African Schools Rugby Association will be keeping a sharp eye on infection rates.
Schools rugby, which was one of the first victims of Covid-19 last year with regards to postponements and cancellations, has seen all related activities suspended until 8 February.
SASRA chairman Noel Ingle confirmed that all schools rugby activities have been postponed until next month. According to the letter, SA Rugby will be aiding SA Rugby with the monitoring of Covid-19 transmission and infection rates during the suspension period and also when training and playing return.
If it is permitted by the relevant bodies, the second four-week phase will consist of gradual integration of contact training.
