What rules do I need to follow once I arrive at Nicholls?

  • Enter via the main entry gate and exit via the sliding ambulance gate, avoiding cross-over as much as possible.
  • No socialising in groups. Get in, train and get out.
  • No physical contact. This means high fives, hand-shakes, bum-taps and group hugs.
  • Hand sanitiser station will be available on entry
  • Sanitising stations will be set-out on the field as required under the guidelines.

What should I do if I have any symptoms of Covid-19?

  • Do not attend training if you are feeling ill, or have symptoms of cold or flu
  • Seek medical attention and advise your Coach

Is there anything else I can do to make our return to rugby more probable?

  • Don’t do anything outside of the return to train/play framework that may jeopardise our chances of rugby recommencing.  One indiscretion, especially anything that results in a positive Coronavirus case, could impact the whole season for everyone.

What can I expect in the actual training session?

  • A $#!% load of conditioning and ball work for the first two weeks.
