RFU Cluster Fixtures Cancellation

Dear all,

Due to the additional restrictions announced yesterday to combat the spread of Covid-19, the RFU has regretfully decided to cancel both the adult male & female Cluster Fixtures (for teams that play in RFU Leagues).

The focus will now switch to the following:

  • Facilitating fixtures through local organising committees and/or CBs, as and when conditions allow a return to playing rugby, which could extend into the summer months.

  • Ensuring any extension does not encroach on the 2021/2022 season start date.

Any further announcements will be made following the next Government review when we know what rugby activity is permitted. In the meantime, your local organising committee and/or CB will be in touch with specific information for your region.

Kind Regards,

Simon Cruise

RFU Competitions Department.
