It was also agreed by the Community Board that if clubs wished to postpone any matches scheduled for this weekend (8/9 Jan) they may do so, without sanctions, providing they informed the Welsh Rugby Union admin and referees’ departments at their earliest convenience and no later than Thursday, wherever possible. This was extended to Indigo Group Premiership matches, Admiral National League, Women’s Cup games, Youth Cup/ League, Schools, mini and junior matches.

In addition, following the latest Welsh Government announcement (Friday 7 Jan), the Welsh Rugby Union has sent this updated guidance to support clubs, schools and other key partners on all areas of their on and off-field activities:
