THE latest update of Scottish Rugby’s Return to Rugby timeline has set targets for the resumption of full contact fixtures, with under-11s looking at 17th May, the 12 to 17 age-group looking at 31st May, and adult rugby looking at 5th July.

This, of course, depends on the easing of Covid restrictions by the Scottish Government going as hoped.

As of 26th April (this coming Monday) mini and youth rugby (17 and under) can resume full contact training, whilst adults (18+) can start playing touch rugby on 17th May and resume full contact training on 31st May.
