The Rugby Football Union has confirmed the re-introduction of scrums and mauls for rugby training in the community game from Monday 19th July.

Full contact 15-a-side matches will be permitted three weeks later from the 7th August.

Sevens rugby can return with full laws from Mondau 19th July.

Clubs and coaches must follow the RFU’s Rugby Roadmap and return to scrummaging guidance, to provide an incremental and safe return for all players.

Further information and guidance on returning to scrummaging can be found on the following page of the RFU website.
