WRU STATEMENT 25/3/20

Community game
 
On Friday 20th March the WRU Board confirmed the cancellation of the 2019/20 season for all WRU competitions. The decision applies to all WRU cup and league competitions as well as the cross-border competition between Welsh and Scottish clubs due to kick off in April. This means that there will be no promotion or relegation in any of the WRU leagues and teams will remain in the league they are currently in. Rugby activity remains suspended and facilities closed until further notice and this includes no organised training or games, use of club gym facilities, organised sessions or any unsanctioned gatherings at rugby premises.
 
Three key rugby factors helped inform this decision:
 
-              No team in any league is currently mathematically guaranteed promotion or relegation
 
-              There are 1,113 WRU Specsavers National League and Indigo Group Premiership games that would need to be played to complete league competitions or to put this another way, only 65% of the season had been completed 
 
-              An absolute minimum of eight weeks would be required to complete the outstanding fixtures
 
A significant number of potential solutions were explored, but ultimately it was agreed that the only consistent and fair option was to cancel the season.
