Fixtures released for WRU league restart

 

The Vale's rugby clubs have learned their fixture lists for the return of the domestic leagues.

The WRU says all divisions, from the Championship to Division Three, are due to kick off on Saturday 13th November.

There'll be no promotion or relegation this season, and matches will be played on a home or away basis.

The league winners in Divisions 1, 2 and 3 will be entered into play-offs to determine national all-Wales champions.

The modified laws, currently in place for cup competitions, will be scrapped if public health conditions remain favourable.

Geraint John, the WRU's community director, said: ''It’s great to be able to provide clarity for clubs with the release of fixtures for senior men’s leagues.''

''It takes us another big step forward on our Pathway to Participation and the news will hopefully encourage more players, coaches, referees and other volunteers back to the game, after so much upheaval over the past 18 months due to the pandemic.''

''Having a full fixture list will also help clubs off-the-field, enabling them to plan events around matches and encourage partners and sponsors to support them in their efforts.''

Welsh Rugby Union

After nearly 18 months without a game, grassroots rugby returned to the Vale in August with the start of the WRU's Plate, Bowl and Shield competitions, under a new localised pool format.

In the East Central region, Dinas Powys and Barry will play in Division One, with Cowbridge in Division Two and Penarth, Old Penarthians, Llantwit Major and Sully View will be split across three separate groups in Division Three.

WRU chair Rob Butcher added: ''We are very grateful to volunteers the length and breadth of the country for the hard work they have put in to help us stick to the timeline we set out for the return of rugby as we know it.''

''It’s thanks to those volunteers and everyone within the game that we are currently ahead of that schedule.'''

''However, while the return of league rugby is almost upon us, we are all still experiencing many of the effects of the pandemic so in order to remain on course, and to keep everyone as safe as possible, it is vitally important to stay vigilant and work within the guidelines and protocols that individual clubs, us as a governing body and the Welsh Government have put in place.''
